Cystic Fibrosis walker welcomes pledge

14 years ago

To the editor:
Once again, I have made a commitment to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to help raise money to find a cure for cystic fibrosis (CF) — a life-threatening genetic disease. I made this commitment because as you know my son has Cystic Fibrosis and I am walking in honor of him.
On May 15, 2010 I will be participating in the Great Strides Walk and raising money and awareness for the CF Foundation. As a participant, I have committed to raise $5,000.
I have a special request, I am asking you to help me meet this goal by making a contribution that will support the research and care programs of the CF Foundation and help find a cure for my son and 30,000 others like him who need our help. It’s important for you to know that the CF Foundation is a very efficient organization and that more than 88 cents of every dollar of revenue raised is used to support CF research, care and education.
Please consider making a donation, whatever you can afford. You may make your check payable to the “Cystic Fibrosis Foundation”, or (CFF). Contributions are 100 percent tax deductible. You can also donate online at
I sincerely appreciate your support and generosity in the past and I will keep you posted on my progress. Please join us at Riverside Park in Presque Isle on May 15 at 9:30 a.m.
