He wanted to lose weight significantly and make his life better. His second goal was his passion to run in the Boston marathon. He set his third goal to save the life of his niece, Julia, by raising awareness for Cystic Fibrosis as well as raising money for research into the treatment and cure of this heartbreaking disease.

With the support from his wife and guidance from his friend Rick, Roger started his journey on 7th June 2008. Roger Wright ran the 2009 Boston Marathon. He still continues to run marathons to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis research.
