I have slowly started to fuel my fire in the fight to cure Cystic Fibrosis. We, as a family, have attended various Great Strides events across California. I personally will be volunteering directly with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, specifically, the Northern California Chapter at their Great Strides walk in May of this year. To continue on that charitable path, I have also become a part of Tomorrow’s Leaders, a philanthropic group of young professionals dedicated to raising awareness for Cystic Fibrosis. I have started to host weekly dinners in an attempt to enjoy the process of cooking, as well as bring friends together. At these dinners, there will be a donation jar and donation Venmo. When people have previously attended these events they ask if they can bring something along. I figured instead of requesting that everyone bring dessert (which I have already made), I can instead encourage friends to raise awareness for Cystic Fibrosis themselves by promoting their donation on various social media platforms, or simply spare the change in their pocket that will have a direct contribution to my fundraising efforts. I would like to say a special thank you to those that have previously contributed, your donation makes more of an impact than you might be aware of.
