Hello there!!! How was your weekend? Mine was pretty party-filled, but you’ll have to wait until tomorrow for a recap…ohhhh, the suspense!
Today, I have a favor to ask of you.
Last September, you may remember, Travis and I joined a few others in Erie, PA for a 65 mile bike ride to raise money and awareness for cystic fibrosis. And we’re doing it again this year!
This year, though, I am in it to win it and am trying to raise as much money as possible for the cause. I’m trying to obliterate the amount of money I raised for last year’s Aptalis CF Cycle for Life.
Cystic fibrosis has become a fundraising priority of mine over the last five years. A friend of mine has CF, and I try to raise as much money and volunteer as much of my time as possible to help the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. I am actually volunteering this coming weekend at a huge party and music festival in Pittsburgh this weekend. Pretty pumped!
If you don’t know what cystic fibrosis is, it’s an inherited disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. It causes the body to build up mucus that clogs the lungs and obstructs the pancreas. The mucus is thick and can lead to lung infections, shortness of breath, and poor growth and weight gain. Currently, there is not a cure, but new medicines and treatments are being researched at all times! To learn more about CF, head to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation website.
That’s where you come in to play. Any money that can be raised for the cause would be greatly appreciated. Even a few dollars can mean a lot of a difference!
If you are interested in donating to my fundraising cause, please head on over to my fundraising page using this link. It would mean a lot to me if you could donate even a few dollars as well as spread the word to those you know! Every little bit helps, and I will be forever grateful .
Now I’m going to leave you with CFF’s motto: Trying to make CF stand for “Cure Found”!
Thanks a million!
