Last May was the first time in 15 years that I did not participate in the Great Strides Walk to raise money and awareness for the fight to cure Cystic Fibrosis, (CF).
I felt conflicted about asking for donations from friends and family during those early days of the COVID-19 pandemic and quarantine. As this year's walk approaches it struck me how incredibly difficult 2020 must have been for people living with CF. The fear of yourself or a loved one with CF contracting COVID-19 and the dire consequences that could have on their survival. These are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, and friends who struggle every day in a typical year just to breathe. I walk this year FOR THEM. Will you join me and support my fundraising goal?
Since my involvement with the CF community in 2004 real progress has been made, but there is still no cure for this devastating disease and many lives are cut far too short. We’ve come so far, but there’s still so much work to do.
Please support me!
We are at a pivotal moment in the history of cystic fibrosis and your support matters. With your help, we can invest our resources in research today, while raising funds for tomorrow, to ensure we have what it takes to reach the finish line. Together, we can make CF stand for Cure Found. Please help me reach my fundraising goal!
