Hello Great Strides 2016!!
Tomorrow is a day that we have been preparing for over the last 3-4 months! Tomorrow is the Great Strides walk in Knoxville to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. So far this year we have raised over $2,000 through donations, t-shirt sales, 31 fundraiser, and the spaghetti dinner. I am daily amazed by the support our friends, family, and community give us. We are so blessed to have each of you in our lives. To say "thank you" would be an understatement. Words cannot express my gratitude for each and everyone of you!
Tomorrow, Saturday May 7, we will be walking to cure CF at The Cove 11808 S. Northshore Drive, Knoxville TN. There will be signs guiding the way through the park. Registration begins at 0900 and the walk begins at 1030. Lunch will be provided by MooYah and a DJ will be providing the entertainment so bring a chair and make a day of it! The weather looks great and we are beyond excited to see everyone's smiling faces in their black Roanans Rebellion t-shirts tomorrow!
The weather looks like it will be BEAUTIFUL for the walk! The sun should be out and it could be a little warm, so consider bringing your own pop up tent and chairs to help provide some shade and keep your team comfortable. And make it fun! You can decorate your tent, bring special snacks or games for your team. We want this to be a big tailgate type atmosphere, so load up the car and come to spend the day with us! A free lunch from Mooyah will be available for all and look for other activities including the #WhyIStride4cf path, dunk tank, balloons and more!
It is never to late to donate on behalf of Roanan and you can do so here. Every penny helps find a cure for my son...
