Great Strides 2007 -- Two more days!
It is again time for the Great Strides Walk to benefit research for Cystic Fibrosis, which effects my daughter Meagan.
Meagan is doing wonderfully. She just turned two, as she loves to tell people, and loves playing with her big sister Katherine, reading stories, and cuddling her "Care-uh Bears." It's my great hope that the research will continue to bear fruit, and enable Meagan and others like her to live long and normal lives.
I hope you'll consider supporting us again by either joining us on May 19 in Fenton park, or visting http://www.cff.org/Great_Strides/JohnMcGuinness to make a donation. Donations are eligible for matching funds, if your employer has them.
Below is some more general information about Great Strides and CF.
Cystic fibrosis is a devastating genetic disease that affects children and young adults. Advances continue to be made in finding a cure, but your help is needed now - more than ever - to help keep up the momentum of this life-saving research. Too many young lives depend on this vital research to let it go unfunded!
GREAT STRIDES is the Cystic Fibrosis (CF) Foundation's largest and most successful national fund-raising event. This year, I'm walking in the GREAT STRIDES event at the Festus Park site on May 19. Please help me meet my fund-raising goal of $1000 by sponsoring me. You'll feel confident in knowing that your generous gift is used efficiently and effectively: nearly 90 cents out of every dollar you contribute goes directly toward supporting research and specialized care that improves the quality of life for those with CF. And, it's tax-deductible.
Making a donation is easy and secure! Just click on the link below to make a donation to my fund-raising page where your donation will be credited to my team. Any amount you can donate is greatly appreciated!
Donating to GREAT STRIDES is such a simple and effective way for you to show your support for this important cause. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those with CF! Once again, thank you for supporting the mission of the CF Foundation!
