My Great Strides Story
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. I walk for them and hope you will support me in my efforts.
Real progress has been made in the search for a cure, but the lives of people with CF are still cut far too short. There still is no cure for this devastating disease. By walking today, I am helping add tomorrows to the lives of people living with cystic fibrosis. Will you join me? Support me by making a donation to my Great Strides fundraising campaign today!
Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.
PERSONAL NOTE FROM RYAN:
While I have not always been very public about having this disease, I wanted to put this event together for the third year in a row and invite my family and friends in helping me support this cause. I've tried to increase the attention drawn to this event over the years and would not have had nearly the amount of success as we have had without all of the amazing effort from everyone involved. This year, I have set a goal of raising $3,000 for my team but please do not feel obligated to donate money. Any and all support is greatly appreciated and no amount is too little.
I will be updating this page as I have more details closer to the event. The walk will be held on May 12th at Vitruvian Park - same place as last year. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me should you have any questions at all.
Thanks everyone for your continued support and I appreciate all of your help in raising money and awareness for this cause! Please don't forget to register if you plan on attending the event!
