Our Great Strides Story
We'd love to have you join us!
Emily's Athletes is a team of friends and family members who are determined to help find a cure for cystic fibrosis. Each year Emily’s Athletes walk 3 miles in the Cystic Fibrosis Great Strides Walk to raise money to support clinical research through the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
Whether at home or in the hospital, Emily and other Cystic Fibrosis patients are dependent on a variety of lifesaving drugs each day. Having access to these life savings medicines is due in large part to financial investments made by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The CF Foundation relies heavily on the Great Strides Walk to raise the funds needed for drug development.
Over the last 11 years our team has been supported by MANY people– and we say a HUGE thank you to each and every one of you. Each day we are reminded of the effort it took by others to get these medicines into our hands.
So here’s your chance to participate again – or maybe even for the first time. There are 2 ways you can support team Emily’s Athletes. The first is to donate to our fundraising efforts by clicking on the “donate” button. The other option is to join our team and raise funds as a walker. The walk takes place at 10AM on May 20th at the Hermann Youth Center in North Andover. It’s a beautiful 3 mile walk that culminates in free ice cream for everyone. Here is a picture of our great looking team from last year! We would love to have you be a part of it this year. If you want to join the team you can do so by clicking on the “join our team” button on this page.
Your support means the world to us and to so many others affected by cystic fibrosis. Thank you and hope to see you there!
Emily and Jim
