Teams from all over the Hudson Valley gathered at Bowdoin Park Wappingers Falls for Sunday's annual "Great Strides" Walk for Cystic Fibrosis, including "Dayna's Dream Team, pictured here in all their smiling, colorful ready-to-walk finery.
After the ribbon-cutting, to make it official, walkers passed through the arch and were off on their trek to raise funds and awareness for persons and their families effected by this illness. It is always so heartening to hear the personal stories and to know every year brings us closer to a cure, when "CF" will stand for "Cure Found!"
Thank you to all the volunteers, all the many sponsors, all the walkers, and anyone who supported this wonderful effort in any way. Here I am joined by Chris Wimmers, who provided the inspiring, keep-you-moving music for the event. It's always a pleasure to work with Chris.
