Tri-Beta Hosting Cystic Fibrosis Walk


A Great Strides 5K Walk will be held at Williams Baptist College on April 14th to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The event is being sponsored by WBC’s chapter of Tri-Beta, the international biology honor society, and it starts at 3 p.m.

"Every day, approximately three babies are born with cystic fibrosis in this country, and every day at least one person with CF dies. Your help is urgently needed to ensure that the rapid pace of CF research continues," said Ashley Vardon, Tri-Beta chapter president

"The cost of this research continues to escalate as sophisticated, new technology must be developed to save these precious lives. By investing in CF research, you are investing in the lives of those with the disease. Working together, we can give the children and young adults with CF the quality of life and the future they deserve," Vardon stated.

Each person who collects $100 will earn an official Cystic Fibrosis Foundation t-shirt. For additional information, contact Ashley Vardon at (480) 244-4118.
