2nd annual Great Strides for Cystic Fibrosis to be held Sept. 28

(Continued)

The Great Strides walk will only be a part of a special Shelby County Cystic Fibrosis fundraising day which includes three activities. Additionally this year, there will be a 5K run in honor of Meliah Miller and a Bike-a-thon. All will take place on Saturday, September 28, at the Shelby County Cystic Fibrosis Event.

Shelby Memorial Hospital (SMH) and the SMH Foundation have partnered with five local businesses: First Federal Savings and Loan of Central Illinois, Villas of Holly Brook, the Shelby Historic House and Inn, Ginger Moss Digital Photography Products, and Killam and England Insurance Agency, Inc. to sponsor the second annual Shelby County Cystic Fibrosis Event.

The Great Strides walk will hold registration at 8:30 with the walk beginning at 9:30 a.m. Participation is free with donations and pledges. All participants will receive a T-shirt.

Volunteers are needed to help with the day of the event to assist with Meliah’s 5K run, the Great Strides event and the Bike-a-Thon. If you do not wish to run, walk or ride in the event, please consider volunteering. Come out and support our friends, Joel Brachbill, Lexie Taylor, Makenzie Erwin, Abbie Pancoast Vollmar and 30,000 other Americans who fight Cystic Fibrosis every day. Cheer them on and work with us as we raise money for research to end this disease.

You may preregister or volunteer by calling SMH at 217-774-3961. To volunteer, please ask for Jill Wells. To preregister, please request Phil Miller or Carol Heiserman. Preregistration for Great Strides, Meliah’s Run or the Bike-a-Thon may also be done online at shelbycf.org or at MySMH.org.
