Great Strides for a Great Cause…

I participated in the Great Strides Walk for Cystic Fibrosis this past Saturday on team Reeverse cf! It was a wonderful experience – sun, friends, a little bit of excercise and helping out a great foundation working on finding a cure for this horrible disease. I am proud to say that the Daytona Beach Great Strides Walk raised over $18,000 to help find a cure! I will definitely be participating next year!

May is Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month. Approximately 30,000 children and adults have CF in the United States and the disease occurs in one of every 3,500 live births of all Americans and about 1,000 new cases of cystic fibrosis are diagnosed each year. If you would like to learn more about cf or make a donation to the foundation, go to http://www.cff.org/


I am by no means a runner, so I was not one of the participants who ran the 5k walk…instead I took photos 🙂

Team Matt walking to honor Matt…

People could leave a pinwheel to honor a friend or loved one they lost to cf… 

For my Lauren 🙂

Go Jess and Sara! They ran the whole 5k!!!

Liam from Team Liam…

She was my favorite participant of the day! When she would run she’d go all out and beat her chest
and yell like a mad-woman! 🙂

All photos take with my Hipstamatic for iPhone…
