Raising Special Needs Kids Raising Special Needs Kids

May 5 is next Saturday and it's the Great Strides walk for Cystic Fibrosis...my son Brady has Cystic Fibrosis, and we have a team of about 50 people that are coming out to do the 2 mile walk to show their support for Brady and the other 30,000+ people in the country with this life threatening disease with a current average life expectancy of 37 years old.  If you don't already have plans on Saturday, May 5, take your kids to the park or take a walk in your neighborhood for my sweet little boy who fights for his life every single day!  Here's a little video to tell you a little about CF!  Enjoy:)

I wanted to ask how you go about getting so many people for your team and the types of fundraisers you do in the meantime. Any and all information would be truly appreciated.

Well, this year was our biggest to be honest...we asked everyone we knew, well that knew Brady very well:)  There were people from our church, kids from his class at school and then people that work with my hubby.  We are definitely blessed!  We honestly don't do any fundraisers for the CF Foundation other than the Great Strides walk each year.  Now, we (personally) give money to the CF Foundation each month, but that's just a family decision we made a long time ago:)  CF Foundation is where all the research comes from...98 cents of every dollar given to the CF Foundation goes straight to research!
