It is Great Strides time again. But since this past year and a half has truly been a time like most of us have never seen before, it is still necessary to keep in place some of the major changes from last year to our Great Strides Walk. Because any exposure to Covid 19 puts our CF community at an extremely high and serious risk, the CF Foundation has decided to continue the virtual platform for Great Strides again this year.
SO, although I won’t be able to participate in the 3 mile Great Strides Walk with members of CF families, I will promise to walk 3 miles and lots more on my own! And I am again hoping you will consider supporting me. I know these are difficult times and I also know you are approached by many very worthwhile causes, but any amount you can contribute will be greatly appreciated and will make a difference.
As you can imagine, CF fundraising has been severely impacted by Covid because all fundraising events have had to be cancelled. But unfortunately, the disease goes on.
Once again . . . many, many thanks for reading this and for your consideration. Together, we can truly make a difference in the lives of all those with cystic fibrosis – and for that I am profoundly grateful.
My wish is for us to make CF stand for “Cure Found!”
