Hello everyone! It's our 9th Annual participation in the CF Foundation Great Strides walk and fundraiser. Last year we did not meet our goal and hoping this year to try to get back on track. The Wery Walkers have renamed ourselves the Wery Warriors. It seemed being post-transplant a good time to change and we can now use this name at all our events (Great Strides Walk, Cycle for Life, and Stair Climb). So we are at it again to reach out for the 2021 Portland Great Strides walk for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF). The walk has changed to GREAT RIDES and will be a car parade at the Portland International Raceway on May 8th. We enjoyed the GREAT RIDES event last year due to Covid restrictions.E
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.
Willem has a new blessed lease on life with his recent Double Lung Transplant. We are grateful to the University Of Washington Medical Center (UWMC), with Dr. Mulligan and Team, and his Donor Family. It was a great success and he continues to being doing miraculously! 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 Willem and I and our Great Strides fundraising efforts.
CF should stand for CURE FOUND not Cystic Fibrosis
All our love and gratitude,
Kathy and Willem Wery
Team Wery Warriors
