The CF event committee would like to thank our sponsors who helped make this year’s event possible: Shelby Memorial Hospital, SMH Foundation, First Federal Savings and Loan of Central Illinois, The Villas of Holly Brook, Shelby Historic House and Inn, Ginger Moss Digital Photography Design, Walgreens, and Killam and Englund Insurance. Thanks to Kerry Campbell of All Kinds of Sounds for providing lots of great music and the use of his sound system. Special thanks to Jerry Yockey and the Tom Short Run for the use of their equipment plus a lot of good advice for our first Meliah’s Run.
All donations went to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation which will channel those funds into support for those who fight CF daily and research for a cure. In total, $17,265.25 has been collected from all three events, online donations and general contributions. Donations are still being accepted.
Mark your calendar for next year’s event to be held on Saturday, September 27th. Look for more good times and exciting fundraising. Please plan to join us then for our Third Annual Shelby County Cystic Fibrosis Event including our third annual Great Strides Walk, second annual Meliah’s Run and our first Abbie’s Ride formerly known as the Bike-a-Thon. Whether you volunteered, walked, ran or bicycled, thank you again to all who supported this event and funding for a cure of Cystic Fibrosis.
