Our Great Strides Story
Join Team Lilly and help add tomorrows for Lilly Belle and the 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis!
Team Lilly was created shortly after our youngest daughter Lilly was diagnosed with CF at 2 months old. Despite the despair and helplessness that comes with a diagnosis of a fatal genetic disease like CF, we refuse to let CF define us. Team Lilly is our way of fighting back - our goal is to do our part to raise awareness of the disease and the funds necessary to find a cure and better treatments until a cure is found.
We raise money and walk for Lilly, but we also walk for the moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. We walk in support of the families and friends who must watch their loved ones battle to do the very things we take for granted every day. We CAN make a difference in the lives of those afflicted with CF.
Team Lilly is one of the largest teams to participate in the Lexington Great Strides Event and we want to continue the tradition this year. Will you join us by walking as a member of Team Lilly at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 19, 2018, at the Whitaker Bank Ballpark in Lexington, Kentucky?
All we need you to do to become a member of our team is click on the "Join our Team" button. From there you can make a donation and start your fundraising.
By becoming a member of our team and making a donation, you are joining our commitment to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis. Together, we are adding tomorrows for Lilly and thousands of other children and adults living with CF 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. If you cannot participate in Great Strides, but still want to support Team Lilly, you can also participate at our upcoming fundraisers leading up to Great Strides:
