Unless something crazy is going on, Tricia and I plan on being at the Great Strides Walk for CF in Cary, NC tomorrow (May 3)!
This will be Tricia's first venture out in a public place (minus a few shopping events)! If you have some time to hang out, the walk begins at noon and continues through the afternoon! Again, even if you can't walk (Tricia won't be walking), that's cool because it's just as important to simply come and hang out!
There are some terrific raffle prizes, including Carolina Hurricanes memorabilia, an autographed Rachel Ray cookbook, restaurant gift cards, golf gift certificates, some electronic equipment and much more....raffle tickets will be available to purchase at the walk, so bring some money. All moneys raised for the walk go directly to the CFF.
Here is some exciting news about the future of CF...
There is so much promising research on the horizon and drugs in the pipeline, specifically VX-770 by Vertex Pharmaceuticals, that have shown dramatic results in drastically improving lung function...all they need is the funding to ensure that they are brought to market and made available to all those with cystic fibrosis as soon as possible - this is the most exciting news since the discovery of the CF gene in 1989!
If you can't come to the walk, but still want to participate and make a difference in the lives of thousands, consider Donating Online Today! Every penny helps!
