Go-Forth is a proud sponsor of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and their Greensboro / High Point Great Strides Walk. Greensboro / High Point is a newer location for CFF, so we are very excited to have an opportunity to use our resources to help our local community rally around this cause. In 2015, Go-Forth will be a Kids Korner sponsor, making a large donation and hosting fun activities for children during the walk. We’ll also attend as a team of employees and our families to walk and raise additional funds for the foundation.
Why the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation? Because this disease has touched us personally, and affects more than 30,000 children and adults in the US, and millions more are carriers of the mutation, many unknowingly. Our second generation owner Suzanne Hazelwood lost an infant child to the disease many years ago, before the Foundation was established to encourage parent and newborn testing, research and treatments. Our family continues to be carriers of the mutation so we are also passionate about parental testing during pregnancy so that parents can be prepared to care for a CF child should that be a possibility.
Thanks to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, children who use to live only to elementary school are now growing into adults in their 30’s, 40’s and beyond. Fore more information about the Great Strides Walk, go here.
