2009 Great Strides Walk for Cystic Fibrosis - Mark your calendars!

This year's Great Strides Walk for Cystic Fibrosis will be held on July 11th, 2009 starting at Summit Cove Elementary School in Dillon. Registration starts at 8am and the walk starts at 9am. Kids and dogs are welcome!

We still need more walkers on the Beaton Photography can sign up by clicking the link, or you can start your own team HERE!

We have two friends, both children, who suffer from Cystic Fibrosis, and this is one of the causes that means the most to me each year.

Megan, age 9, is a local student who skiis and bikes and shares this big radiant smile daily, and she also spends hours each day taking medication and doing treatments to control her Cystic Fibrosis (CF).

The other is Owen Mueller, age 3, of Los Angeles. His grandma, Barb, is one of my great photo buddies, and she managed to walk with us in Dillon last summer, even though she lives in Illinois! It was so great to have her as part of this big day and helping us all to fight this terrible disease!

So please join us and walk with us, tell your friends, come out on July 11th and cheer us on, or donate to any of the teams that are walking! Here are a few that I know of:

Summit Cove Elementary Team led by Heather Johnston & Bobby Marony

Beaton Photography Team

The Radical Radek Team

The Zany Z Team headed by Karen Zaitz

Charneskie Team

Fulkerson Team
