Blowing away CF!

I can't believe I never got on here to talk about the Great Strides team our family made this year! The walk was last weekend, and such an awesome experience. It was our families first time being apart of this since us kids were little. Cortney and I were determined to make it happen this year, so we formed a Houston Family team and we started raising money! For those of you who don't know much about the Great Strides program here is a little info: Great Strides is the CFF's largest and most successful national fundraiser, 90cents of every dollar raised is used in vital CF programs to support research, care and education! It's thanks to generous donors to Great Strides that fund new treatments and drugs that help our family live a long, more normal life. Our team decided to start off small this year since it was our first year, but we exceeded every goal we made! We raised over $1000 & had a bigger group then we expected there to walk with us. I wasn't able to stay the whole walk sadly, so I'm really looking forward to next year. Seeing all the love and support from family and friends is incredible! Heck those who walked with us were willing to get up and going on a Saturday morning at 7:30 am.... If that's not love I don't know what is!
