Another year for Great Strides, but OH WHAT A YEAR!
We celebrate two significant milestones in 2018:
1) This year marks Amy VanVranken's 20th year with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. As many of you know, she took a 10 year old Allison under her wing soon after she started, and has become one of Allison's closest friends and confidants over the years. Amy has worked tirelessly for the Foundation, and our family, as well as the entire CF community is beyond grateful.
2) Allison will celebrate her 30th birthday in 2018. Alfredo and I, and all of you who have been on this journey with us since 1990, understand what an accomplishment this is, and we are grateful. BUT IT IS NOT ENOUGH. Not.even.close.
I'd like to invite all of our friends to join this year's CF Great Strides team - Alli's Angels - to meet our goal of $20,000 in 2018 - to honor the EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR of the North Texas CFF, and our dear friend AMY VanVRANKEN. If you live in or around Dallas - come out and walk on May 12th. If you are outside the Dallas area, please consider registering as an angel walker, and raising a bit of $$ to help us reach that goal.
With much appreciation,
