2019 is our second year participating in the Great Strides event in Wichita. Our daughter was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis in September of 2018 when she was 3 weeks old. As with many parents in our situation, my husband and I were shocked by the diagnosis, as neither of us were aware we were carriers. I think it's important for people to be more aware of this horrible disease and understand what it is. I am excited to be involved with this event and hope you might consider joining me, if not by participating, then by donating to one of our team members!
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. We walk for them. Will you join us? To become a member of our team, just click on the "Join our Team" button. From there, you can make a donation and start fundraising.

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 -- join our team today!
