Team Cookie!


What is Team Cookie?  Team Cookie is anyone and everyone who would like to show their support for Brooke, a.k.a. "Brookie the Cookie," Taptick and everyone else affected by Cystic Fibrosis.

What is a Great Strides Walk?  GREAT STRIDES is the CF Foundation’s largest fund-raising event.  It provides opportunities for all people within a local community to get involved forming teams through their workplace, through clubs and organizations or with friends and family.  Walk day is a fun, family-oriented celebration that includes a healthy 10 kilometer (6.2 miles) walk, Kids’ Corner activities, food, and festivities that participants look forward to year after year. 
 
Are there many Great Strides Walks?  Yes!  There are many walks throughout the country and at different times of the year.  Consider doing a walk in your area.  Simply register at  www.cff.org/Greatstrides.  Be sure to register as Team Cookie and let us know.  We are creating a scrapbook for Brooke to show her the impact she has made.  Definitely send a picture of your walkers and let us know the total $ raised.
 
What if I have already made a donation?  Thank you!  As many of us are all friends, it is very likely you will be asked to participate in more than one walk or to make a donation more than once.  If you have already made a donation, or simply choose not to, that's ok.  No one will be offended. 
 
How is my donation used?  You're donation is used efficiently and effectively: nearly 90 cents out of every dollar you contribute goes directly toward supporting research and specialized care that improves the quality of life for those with CF. And, it's tax-deductible.
 
What is Cystic Fibrosis?  It's a nasty genetic disease that is no fun.  Please go to the following for a brief overview http://www.cff.org/AboutCF/Faqs/.
