Team Jake has now been reactivated for May 2020. Our goal is to raise as much money as we can between now and the Great Strides Walk in May 2020 to help fund the research to find a cure to CF. This is our 8th year fundraising for this important cause.
My precious Grandson, Jake, was born in December 2012 with Cystic Fibrosis. We look forward to the day when CF is cured. The CF Foundation has worked tirelessly to help find the drugs and treatments that treat and extend the lives of CFers and their goal is to find the Cure.
In 2015, Kalydeco, a drug developed by Vertex with support of the CF Foundation, was approved for children over age 2. Jake began taking it in April 2015 and it has made a tremendous difference in his life and health.
This is why we continue to fundraise, so that more life saving and life improving drugs can be developed.
Won't you please help Jake and the other CF patients?
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. I walk for them and hope you will support me in my efforts.
Real progress has been made in the search for a cure, but the lives of people with CF are still cut far too short. There still is no cure for this devastating disease. By walking today, I am helping add tomorrows to the lives of people living with cystic fibrosis. Will you join me? Support me by making a donation to my Great Strides fundraising campaign today!
Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.
Please support me!
