Dear friends & family,
In our changing world, so much is new and very different. Losses and gifts. Miracles and deep sadness. We have chosen to embrace that which is familiar and commit to being fluid in a changing world. With that in mind we look forward to our work to strengthen the CF Foundation and its mission. This year our walk will be on site for the first time in 3 years. You are invited to participate in the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Great Strides walk on May 14th, 2022. It will be held at Crossings Park of Colonie, 580 Albany Shaker Road, Loudonville, NY 12211. We hope you will join us. If you are not comfortable walking, we welcome you to donate.
Asking for donations during COVID 19 is not easy. It feels like asking for money is out of place and deeply uncomfortable. But most nonprofits are also feeling the impacts of coronavirus, with canceled events, lost revenue, and disrupted programming. Now more than ever, it’s important to ask our supporters for a donation to keep our organization healthy through this crisis.
So, although our family recognizes the tremendous stress and financial strain on many, our work goes on because the research must go forward. We remain committed to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's mission: to cure cystic fibrosis and provide all people with the disease the opportunity to lead full, productive lives by funding research and drug development, promoting individualized treatment, and ensuring access to high-quality, specialized care.
We dedicate this year’s Cystic Fibrosis Walk to Shirley Wollman, beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and devoted CFF friend. AND we also dedicate this year’s walk to precious Harper Friedson. Harper is Matt and Olivia’s sweet baby who arrived last May. What a gift and CF miracle she is!
To our CF family, the precious ones we have lost, and those who still struggle, I assure you, our award-winning team’s commitment remains strong. Thank you to our many friends and family members who, 28 years ago, invested in a young boy’s future. Together we remain committed to the work to find a cure for all.
Fondly, The Friedson Family
Team Friedson Family
