CF Great Strides Walk
It's been awhile since I blogged I have been busy! I was in the hospital, got out did home Iv's for a week and then finale preparations for the walk. I coordinate and have a Great Strides walk in my hometown, with little help from the foundation so it's a lot of work for me. But it was last Sunday it and was a huge success! We raised $10,000.00!! That is a lot for the area I live in! There is a 12 year old girl, Aleeya who lives in the neighboring town to me and she has CF too so this is our walk in honor of us. She did an amazing job fund-raising bringing in 1,550.00 more then tripling her goal! We did a 50/50, silent auction, Aleeya fund-raised up until the end selling candy bars at the walk, we sold shirts for $10.00 and $6.00 goes back to the foundation, we still have some left if anyone is interested in them (the picture does not do the color justice they are a very pretty blue). So over all a huge success and a great feeling to have my hard work pay off :) Thanks to all of those who participated and donated it is greatly appreciated!
