Hello friends and family,
Yes it is our CF Great Strides time of year again, and I hope that you will support this great cause. The Foundation is HUGELY efficient in their operations, with over 87% of funds raised going to patient programs and research activities. For check writers and snail mailers, please make your checks to CF Great Strides and mail them to me at 17 Sunset Road Franklin MA 02038. This site makes it super easy to donate by credit card. My annual Walk site is Providence-Team Legs for Lauren-Prov.
These events have super low overhead, and are all unique to the amazing volunteers that make these events so successful. Last year I got to meet Miss Teen New Bedford and loved the way she interacted so beautifully with walkers of all ages. I LOVE watching these kids thrive DESPITE having CF. The movie Five Feet Apart is a MOVIE-yet does a decent job of showing what it might be like to be hospitalized for a "tune-up". I have so much respect for the resilency of CF'ers.
Real progress has been made in the search for a cure, but the lives of people with CF are still cut far too short. There still is no cure for this devastating disease. By walking today, I am helping add tomorrows to the lives of people living with cystic fibrosis. Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.
Thanks in advance for your support- donations of all sizes are appreciated.
