Attorneys Dell & Schaefer have once again shown their support for community by contributing to the Great Strides fundraising walk for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Great Strides is the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s largest fundraising event. The Great Strides walk takes place in communities across the nation and donations raised at these walks will support life-saving research and care for those who suffer from this disease.
Cystic fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the United States (70,000 worldwide). Since 1955, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has been the driving force behind the pursuit of a cure. Thanks to the dedication and financial backing of supporters, they are making a difference. In the 1950s, few children with cystic fibrosis lived to attend elementary school. Today, advances in research and medical treatments have further enhanced and extended life for children and adults with CF. Many people with the disease can now expect to live into their 30s, 40s and beyond.
