What a year, am I right? From the way 2021 is starting out, it is only going to get more interesting. We here in the Gebhardt house have pretty much been on lockdown for the last year in order to protect Addy. As you know, COVID-19 can be very dangerous for anyone with preexisting conditions, not to mention pre-existing lung conditions.
Many of you have supported our Great Strides efforts throughout the years and for that we are eternally grateful. This year’s event will look different, but our mission to help every cf patient couldn’t be more crucial. Until it’s Done.
For those of you following Addy’s journey, this is our 16th year supporting Great Strides in honor of Addy who turns 15 later this year (her first walk was in the womb). While we are on the topic of birthdays, I will celebrate quite the milestone this year turning the Big 5-0. In honor of my time on this earth for a half a century (OMG) and Addy’s 15 years we are asking you to support our Virtual Great Strides effort by raising donations to walk between 15 – 50 miles in the next 50 days. We want to see how far our wings spread and our Army marches so please post a picture from your walk on our Addy’s Army Facebook Page and encourage others to get out and walk with you.
Will you join our mission to make CF stand for Cure Found?
My personal goal this year is $15,000.00. I would love it if you would consider making a donation in honor of Addy.
