With only a few days left to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, we are doing something pretty crazy--Jumping out of a perfectly good airplane! Only one sleep til the big air dive on Tuesday! ( Sundays jump was postponed due to weather)
What happens when adventurous competitors conjure up such a risky adventure? Who would go this far, risking life and limb? Would you believe it's local competing catering and restaurant business spirits-Jason Capps of Bella Sera Catering, Venue & Trattoria and Dixie Smith from Andora Restaurant & Catering?
In our opinion, those with CF face greater challenges than this in their own lives everyday. So why not a "charity stunt at 13,000 feet" to rally support and raise awareness? Call it what you will, but what better way to GO BIG OR GO HOME?
This is why we really need your help, today, as the 11th hour of 2011's Fifty Finest campaign nears. To date there is $2200 on the books - 25% toward the $10k goal. Please embrace this effort with a modest contribution, conveniently online, and 100% tax deductible, now:

I sincerely thank you from the bottom of my heart for your donation. You are helping to find a cure. I know many people who have relatives or friends afflicted with CF and I hear about their struggles. Whatever I can do to help them, I will. And having you donate to help this cause brings tears to my eyes. I am so blessed with such loving and giving friends and family. Thank you.
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a devastating genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. More than ten million Americans are symptomless carriers of the defective CF gene. 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.
When the Foundation began in 1955, most children with CF did not live to see their first day of elementary school. Today, the median life expectancy for people with CF is almost 37. This is remarkable progress, but not good enough. We continue to lose precious lives to CF every day. To learn more about CF and the CF Foundation, visit www.cff.org.
Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those with cystic fibrosis. Thank you for supporting the mission of the CF Foundation! God Bless.
