Join the UAB Adult CF Team for Great Strides '10!

Please consider joining the UAB Adult CF Team for the annual Great Strides event in Birmingham, AL on May 22, 2010. Our focus for this year is to remind us that "Every Breath Is A Gift." GREAT STRIDES is the CF Foundation’s biggest fundraiser and provides us an opportunity to help make a difference in the lives of those with Cystic Fibrosis.

Advances continue to be made in finding a cure, but your help is needed now - more than ever - to help keep up the momentum of this life-saving research. As you may know, the CF Foundation receives no government funding. Therefore, the funds that we raise go directly to helping us find a cure.

Last year the UAB Adult CF Team raised over $6,300.

This year, I would love for you to walk with me and the other members of the UAB Adult CF Team, with a goal of raising at least $5,000 by May 22, 2010 in Birmingham, AL.

I know this year’s goal can be met with your help! Remember, every dollar that you raise is used efficiently and effectively. Each contribution is tax-deductible and goes directly toward supporting research and specialized care that improves the quality of life for those with CF.

If you would like to join the team, log on to my website. If you have any problems registering, please let me know and I will be happy to process your registration manually. You can reach me via e-mail at bankrgrl -at- gmail -dot- com. Once you are registered, the next step is the easiest - get out there and fund raise, fund raise, fund raise!

I look forward to seeing all of you who participated last year and hopefully a few new faces. Please feel free to share this e-mail with others. Help this be an outstanding year ~ let's start taking GREAT STRIDES to cure CF.
