The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation works tirelessly to raise funds that support research to find a cure for this life-shortening disease, and to assist persons and their families who are coping with this affliction. Right here in the Hudson Valley, taking place this Sunday at Bowdoin Park in Wappingers Falls, is the biggest fundraiser of the year--the Great Strides Walk.
It is not too late to join in. You can find information here.
I will be on hand again this year to mingle and emcee the proceedings. It's always a great bunch of people who gather, walk, and demonstrate by their presence their ongoing commitment to their shared vision of an eventual cure for this complex disease. I have been involved for many years, and the progress that has been made in understanding and treating this condition is just so amazing and heartening! Hope and enthusiasm are sustained by these breakthroughs, and the heartfelt appreciation of those who feel so loved and cared about!
