Because 30,000 young americans are afflicted by this life threatening disease we hope to raise money to find a cure.
My friends who are shown in the picture are one of many families that this disease has affected, both of their boys have CF and are hoping for a cure. They are a very close part of our circle of friends and family. Our main goal is to raise awareness and help find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. Last year between a walk for a cure and other fundraisers we raised over $40,000.00, 90% of which went to research, just in the Lake Norman area. This year we would like to at least reach that figure or go beyond. We hope that you will join us to find a cure... many young lives are at stake.
