Our Great Strides Story
Hello there! My name is Justin Shopp and this is my second year raising money for CFF's Great Stride's event. As you probably already know, I was diagnosed back in February 2012 with cystic fibrosis, also known as "CF." There are approximately 30,000 kids and adults living with cystic fibrosis in our country and for every $1 raised for CFF, 90 cents goes towards research. Already since I have been diagnosed, at least one new drug has been developed to treat some of us with CF. My family, friends and I are so encouraged by these scientific discorveries that we are even more excited about raising money for a cure for this disease.
Like me, there are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. I am going to walk for them as well as myself. Will you join us? You can join our team and/or make a donation to my efforts (I win a really cool prize if I raise over $10,000!).
By becoming a member of our team and making a donation, you are joining a growing group of people committed to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis. Together, we are adding tomorrows to the lives of people living with CF, like myself, by supporting the search for a cure.
Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families. My family and friends would love to see you there, but more importantly, make a donation so we can cure CF. We are so close and I am so hopeful this will become a reality very soon.
Thank you very much for considering making a donation. I am truly grateful.
