FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Walk-a-Thon for Cystic Fibrosis to be Held at HCC

"A Great Strides Walk-a-Thon will be held on Saturday, September 23 at Haywood Community College beginning at 9 a.m.–1 p.m. The event is sponsored by the HCC Student Government Association.



"We nee you! Every day, approximately three babies are born with CF in this country, and every day at least one person with CF dies. Your help is urgently needed to ensure that the rapid pace of CF research continues. The cost of this research continues to escalate as sophisticated, new technology must be developed to save these precious lives.



By investing in CF research, you are investing in the lives of those with the disease. Working together, we can give the children and young adults with CF the quality of life and the future they deserve," stated Amber Buckner, HCC Student Government president.



Everyone can be a winner! Each person who collects $50 will earn an official Cystic Fibrosis Foundation t-shirt. Additional prizes are available and a good time is guaranteed to be had by all!



Please call Cynthia Webb at (828) 627-4646 for more details.
