There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. My daughter, Alyssa, is one of them. I walk for her. I also have dozens and dozens of friends I've met on this journey who also have CF or have a child with CF. I walk for them.
By becoming a member of our team or making a donation, you are joining a growing group of people committed to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is an impressive non-profit that puts nearly 90 cents of every dollar raised toward research. Look this up....its pretty impressive as some of the best known non-profits only put half or less than half to research and they are still considered good investments.
I walk so that I can someday be a part of finding better therapies and maybe a cure.
