I am so grateful that you have chosen to help Ethan, and other kids with CF, add tomorrows. Thank you so much for participating, either by walking with us, donating or fundraising your selves, every effort is appreciated more than I can express.
CF is such a horrible disease, as a parent it leaves me feeling helpless because there are days that I cannot make my child feel better. Knowing that this disease is progressive takes my breath away on a regular basis. We are so lucky that Ethan is "healthy" for a child with CF. We maintain his health by doing his treatments and medications, making sure he takes his enzymes when he eats, keeping all of his doctor appointments, and not exposing him to people with colds or other sickness. We enjoy everyday and try not to focus on the "what ifs".
In 2017, Ethan's Force was awarded the "Rookie Team of the Year" for our fundraising efforts at the Great Strides walk in Gainesville, FL. We raised over $1,100! In 2018, Ethan's Force participated in the Great Strides in St. Petersburg and Tampa and raised nearly $2,000!
PLEASE SHARE our team page, or join our team and fundraise under your own name. Force Wear Tampa will be sponsoring Ethan's Force again this year and will provide Tshirts for all members of our team. Contact Mike or Lucy to "order" your size for this years walk, or you can wear your Ethan's Force shirt from previous walks! If you raise a minimum of $100, you receive an OFFICIAL Great Strides CFF shirt, but you do not have to donate anything if you do not wish to.
