Welcome to team NexTier Bank! We stride in honor of team leader's 30 year old son, Alex. Alex is doing GREAT! He has finished his Masters Degree, is renovating a home and teaching at Winter Springs High School. Thankfully, Alex responded perfectly to Trikafta, a medication that he was involved with as a member of the early phases CFF sponsored trials. This breakthrough medication has helped many, but not all who suffer the effects of Cystic Fibrosis. Thus, we continue with fund raising until adequate therapeutics are available for all.
NexTier will continue to be a corporate sponsor of this event, and we invite employees and friends alike to join me us walking this 5-K event on the morning of May 20th at Point State Park.
For too long, cystic fibrosis, a rare, genetic disease, has robbed people of tomorrows – progressively limiting their ability to breathe and tragically shortening life. There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with CF. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers who struggle every day in the face of this devasting disease. We walk in Great Strides for them.
Will you join us?
Great Strides is a fun event that provides a fantastic opportunity for family, friends, students, and colleagues to come together to make a difference in the lives of people with CF.
