Every year, we walk for one special reason and that is Robbie Sheppard. Robbie just turned 15 years old and is the son of Rees and Amy (Lupini) Sheppard and younger brother to Trey. Robbie is a very active young man who loves baseball and as his mom says is her "CF Warrior" There is not a day that goes by that he does not tackle Cystic Fibrosis, all of his testing, treatments and medications without a smile on his face.
Cystic fibrosis is a life-threatening, genetic disease that affects approximately 30,000 people in the United States. Research and care supported by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation continues to make a difference in the lives of people with CF.
This year, I'm participating in my local Great Strides walk and I need your help to fill our team RESEARCHFOR ROBBIE and to meet my fundraising goal. Your time walking with us and/or generous gift will support the Foundation’s mission to find a cure and improve the lives of people with CF. Plus, your gift is 100 percent tax deductible.
Donating is easy and secure. Simply visit my personal page and follow the prompts to make a donation. Any amount that you can contribute is greatly appreciated. Your support will help fuel lifesaving research and care for people with CF.

Thank you for supporting me and my Great Strides team! Together we can make a difference and add tomorrows to the lives of people with cystic fibrosis.
