Great Strides - Fight with us!

Hi Friends,

This is Rebecca again - stealing back DJ's blog to send out an update since he doesn't get around to updating it very often. I know several of you have shared with us that you use this blog to keep up to date with what is happening in our life and with Colin.

I wanted to take a moment and write to you, because we need your help! We are participating in an amazing campaign for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation called Great Strides. Great Strides is a 5K walk to raise funding for CF research. The vital research is what creates the drugs and therapies that allow Colin and other kids with CF to live longer more fulfilled (HEALTHY!) lives. CF does not receive federal funding, so it is crucial that people like you and me help make this research possible.

Would you consider donating to our team - the Fighting Fish? We understand that with the current economy and job loss all around, it may be very difficult to spare even a small amount, but you can be sure it is going to a good cause... helping Colin! Please think about what you can give - $25, $10... even $5 will make a difference!

Go to to make a donation to our team online, or you can mail a check directly to us. We appreciate you taking a part in this years Great Strides.

Together, with your help, we can make a difference.
