My Xtreme Hike Story
My name is Anne, and I'm at Clinical Research Coordinator for the Pediatric Department at UVA. Specifically, I work with kids and adults with Cystic Fibrosis. In partnership with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, I help to facilitate multiple clinical studies on the effects of Trikafta, a new and well-loved drug for people with the most common mutations of Cystic Fibrosis. In order to honor the men, women, and children with Cystic Fibrosis, as well as their families, I have decided to join several wonderful coworkers in this fundraising hike.
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, and friends who struggle every day just to breathe. I hike for them. Will you join me and support my fundraising goal?
Real progress has been made for those who have CF, but there is still no cure for this devastating disease and many lives are cut far too short. We’ve come so far, but there’s still so much work to do. I will not stop hiking until all those with cystic fibrosis have a cure. We will not leave anyone behind.
Please support me!
We are at a pivotal moment in the history of cystic fibrosis and your support matters. With your help, we can invest our resources in research today, while raising funds for tomorrow, to ensure we have what it takes to reach the finish line. Together, we can make CF stand for Cure Found. Please help me reach my fundraising goal by donating to my Xtreme Hike fundraising campaign today!
