I started “striding” in 2011 and have made it a goal to participate every year. Here are the top five reasons why I stride and think others should too:
Paul participates in Great Strides, advocates on the Hill and has even launched a CF fundraiser. Oh, and he's only 18.
Today, I no longer feel tied to a hospital bed and a grim diagnosis, and I have you to thank.
Every year, hundreds of thousands of people raise millions of dollars for Great Strides -- the CF Foundation's largest national fundraising event. But did you know that the staff of the national office in Bethesda, Md., form their own department teams and also raise money alongside the CF community?
My life milestones wouldn't have been possible without the drive and dedication of the generous people who donate to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
Meb Keflezighi, one of the world's best runners, joined Lee University and ran in the 65 Roses 5K in Cleveland, Tenn. to support the fight against cystic fibrosis. Lee University was thrilled to welcome him as part of its longstanding tradition of raising funds in support of the CF Foundation's mission.
