Hello everyone! It's our 9th Annual participation in the CF Foundation Great Strides, now "Rides" fundraiser. Last year we had a Car Parade to replace the walk. This year, May 8th, we're doing the same, but located at Portland International Raceway (PIR). We hope to meet our fund raising goal, as we did not meet our goal last year. I'm now almost 2 years post-transplant and doing great. The Wery Warriors are at it again to reach out for the 2021 Portland Great Riides (car parade) for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF).
We need your help to make our fundraising goal! Your efforts will be used to support the Foundation's mission of finding a cure and improving the lives of those with CF (like Willem's). Your gift is 100% tax deductible and the CFF is rated 4 out of 4 stars by Charity Navigator, meaning more of your contribution goes to the cause rather than administration. Please help us by donating to my team.
I have a new lease on life after my Double Lung Transplant almost 2 years ago. We are grateful to the University Of Washington Medical Center (UWMC) and the Transplant Team, and my Donor Family. I'm going great and enjoying my new life. Yet there are many more that need your help. Previous donations aided in the research that released the new drug treatment of Trikafta that is also greatly improving the lives of 90% of those inflicted with CF. And we don't want to forget the other 10% waiting for their chance at a new treatment option too. Please help us fight the fight!
Donating is easy and secure. Any amount that you can contribute is greatly appreciated. Your support matters!
Thank you for supporting Kathy and I and our Great Strides fundraising efforts.
CF should stand for CURE FOUND not Cystic Fibrosis
All our love and gratitude,
Willem and Kathy Wery
Team Wery Warriors
