Ride for Cure is Sunday
The 16th annual Trail Ride for the Cure to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation will be Sunday at the Circle S Guest Ranch north of Lawrence.
Cystic Fibrosis is a life-threatening genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of roughly 30,000 children and adults in the United States. More than 10 million Americans are unknowing, symptomless carriers of the defective CF gene. CF occurs in one of every 3,900 live births and about 1,000 new cases of CF are diagnosed each year. The mission of the CF Foundation (CFF) is to assure the development of the means to cure and control CF and to improve the quality of life for those with the disease.
The CFF is one of the most efficient voluntary health organizations of its kind and is consistently recognized by such magazines as Forbes and SmartMoney for its innovative approach to curing a disease.
The CFF has made great strides to improve the quality and length of life of people with CF. All volunteer effort and 100 percent of the money received goes directly to the CFF.
Candace Braksick participates each year in this trail ride to raise money to fund continued research and treatment centers.
If you would like to sponsor her with a tax-deductible contribution, please send your check, made out to the CFF, to: Candace Braksick, P.O. Box 261, McLouth 66054-0261.
If you have a horse and are interested in riding at the trail ride, please let her know and she will send you more information.
