It is time again for my annual Great Strides Fundraiser for Cystic Fibrosis. We are excited because the Inspire Spero team, led by Chad, Julie, Liam and Tate will finally be back outside walking together, on Saturday, June 4 on the National Mall. Only four weeks to raise funds, so please help.
Many of you know our story. Our son, Chad turned 40 last year and we are looking forward to celebrating many, many more years in the future. He was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at 3, when life expectancy was 12. Today, he is alive and healthy, living life to the fullest as a husband, father, son, brother, friend and provider.
Throughout his life, we have witnessed his courage and resiliency. Thanks to the incredible progress made possible by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Chad has personally benefitted from research, new therapies, new drugs and so many other medical advancements including the latest modulator, Trikafta, with positive results.
Judy and I have been engaged with the Foundation for almost 40 years. We wish we could stop raising funds but the goal is the cure and we still have more work to do.
On behalf of Chad’s family and all the Riedys we humbly ask you to support this cause. Every dollar matters. For those of you who have given before, the success is part of your legacy. For those who are giving for the first time, thank you for helping us.
