Just imagine: the power to make CF disappear at the snap of our fingers.
Cystic fibrosis is a rare, genetic, life-shortening disease that makes it difficult to breathe, among other complications. For 30 years, Great Strides – the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s largest national fundraising event – has supported the Foundation’s mission to cure cystic fibrosis. Nearly every CF drug out there has been made possible by the Foundation, and because of funds raised from Great Strides, people with CF are living longer, healthier lives and pursuing their dreams.
Every day, we are working to build on this incredible momentum, but there are still many more steps to be taken. While people with CF are living longer than in the past, we still lose precious young lives every day.
In previous years, my team, the Seananigans, held a contest with the donations to help decide the shirt that we would wear at Great Strides. This year, however, one design said so much that we couldn't not use it at the walk on May 18th in Austin (check out the photo on this page!). I can't think of a better visual to represent our goal.
Like the Avengers, the Seananigans are a team, and we need everyone's support to meet our fundraising goal. Your generous gift will help accelerate innovative research and drug development, as well as advance care and advocacy. Plus, your gift is 100 percent tax deductible.
Donating is easy and secure. Any amount that you can contribute is greatly appreciated. Your gift will help add tomorrows to the lives of people with cystic fibrosis by supporting groundbreaking research and medical progress towards a cure. Please help me reach my fundraising goal!
Or if you'd like to join the Seananigans in fundraising and to be at the walk on May 18 in Austin, please join our team on this site (link on the left or up at the top pending what device you're on)!
