After having taken a few years off from participating in the Great Strides to Cure Cystic Fibrosis Walkathon I am happy to tell you WE ARE BACK IN FULL FORCE!!! Except a few things have changed. 1) Now our Team name is $teven's Striders. As most of you may remember $teven loved signing his name with a $. And that is why we are here this year to raise $$$$ to fund the cure for CF. and 2) We will walk in the Poughkeepsie Great Strides at Bowdoin Park, Wappingers Falls, NY
The CF patients did not have the luxury of taking a few years off from their illness.... from their pills, medications, therapies, hospitalizations, and transplants. Let's make up for the lost time and make $teven proud of what we can accomplish. Every $ helps is is appreciated!!
Nearly 40,000 people in the United States have cystic fibrosis: a progressive, genetic disease that affects the lungs, pancreas, and other organs. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, and friends who face the sobering prospect of a shortened lifespan. I walk for them as I promised $teven I would continue to do.
Working alongside the CF community, the CF Foundation has fostered the development of more than a dozen CF treatments and helped add decades of life for people with CF. Yet, many people with CF do not benefit from existing therapies. Our vision is a cure for every person with cystic fibrosis – a life free from the burden of this disease – and we will not leave anyone behind.
You can support me!
By supporting my fundraising goal, you have an opportunity in your lifetime to be part of ending this disease. Please consider joining us and help make medical history.
