Organizers made a big, colorful scene last weekend with a short, fluorescent fundraiser.
Participants riding or pulling wheeled vehicles — bikes, skateboards, baby carriers — traveled just 3.4 miles from the Hermosa Beach Pier to the Manhattan Beach Pier and back to raise money for Claire’s Place Foundation Extended Hospital Stay Grant Program.
It’s was the eighth annual Glow Ride for CF.
The annual event is the brainchild of Redondo Beach’s Claire Wineland, a fierce advocate for cystic fibrosis research who died at 21 from the disease in 2018, following a double-lung transplant.

Wineland’s openness on YouTube about cystic fibrosis and her raw honesty about its toll captured the heart of the nation.
‘“The glowing reviews of our Glow Ride from participants and media would make my daughter, Claire, so proud,” said Claire’s Place Foundation Executive Director Melissa Yeager, in a statement.
“Learning the magic of giving at a young age was extremely important to Claire and is woven into the event,” Yeager added.
In her daughter’s own words, an oft-repeated phrase by Wineland: “Death is inevitable. Living a life we can be proud of is something we can control.”
Wineland’s legacy as ambassador for the ride was carried on by Massimo Armato, a seven year-old living with cystic fibrosis. His mother is Stacey Armato, a Hermosa Beach City Councilmember.
