Great Things For Great Strides

There are only 9 days left until the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's Great Strides walk here in Sacramento, California. May 1st is the big day.

Team Lucy is coming together quite nicely. We have a confirmed total of 36 people, friends and family, that are walking with Lucy that morning to support our fight against CF. It is such a great thing that so many people are going out of their way to help us out, raising funds for a cure and showing up to walk for Lucy.

A friend of a friend works for a company that does digital media advertising in the Sacramento area. She has so kindly offered her services and free digital billboard space to help us spread awareness about Cystic Fibrosis and the Great Strides walk on May 1st. I have just looked at the rough creative plan before she adds it to the billboard. It is truly a great thing for our campaign! The location of this Great Strides billboard is in such a place that thousands of people will drive by it everyday on their commute. In Sacramento, along Highway 50 (the same highway that stretches over 3,000 miles from California to Maryland) near Sacramento State University, is where the billboard will be. I'll keep you all posted with pictures and the exact location. It should be finalized by tomorrow.

With the Team Lucy bake sale (that raised a total of $800 for CFF) behind us, we now have another upcoming fundraiser on Saturday. In Sacramento, on the corner of Freeport and Sutterville, Team Lucy members will be having a car wash, BBQ and bake sale to benefit the Foundation. Come by, grab some food, and relax while we pimp your ride. I am excited to see how much this great thing will raise for the foundation.

Team Lucy has raised an estimated $3,000 so far this year, and we won't be stopping as soon as we walk on May 1st. No way. We will continue to raise funds through the summer, adding more tomorrows everyday for the 30,000 CFers fighting this disease in the U.S. There are more great things in the works for Team Lucy and the Foundation. The next event that I am planning is still top secret, but I can guarantee you that it will be a homerun in the fundraising department!

Stay tuned...
