Is this your first year participating in the Great Strides Cystic Fibrosis Walk?
What interests you most about this fundraiser?
I enjoy that the fundraiser allows the local IST team to come together outside of work for something much bigger than ourselves. We not only get a chance to enjoy time outside of work but make an impact in our local community.
What has inspired you to raise money for CFF?
I had the opportunity to meet Blake and his family a few years ago and what an amazing kid. This year was the first I have not travelled since transitioning back into the Operations Manager role has allowed me to lead a walk this year!
Does anyone in your life play a role in supporting your involvement and providing inspiration?
My wife Stephanie was very supportive in the leading a CF walk in Jacksonville this year and has even joined the team. Our oldest son Wyatt has been my inspiration, he is Autistic and though we face many challenges daily, I am grateful for his health and ability to breathe. This is a great chance to add another day to a person’s life fighting CF.
IST’s goal this year is to raise $30,000!
Your support will go 100% to the fight to help eradicate Cystic Fibrosis. Please support the CFF now!
