From the Editor's Desk

Let me be one more to welcome you to our inaugural issue of CFForward, the quarterly e-Newsletter of the Greater New York Chapter.  I have served as Editor-in-Chief of non-profit publications for many years, and welcome the opportunity to bring you up-to-date information about current research and science, fundraising opportunities, news from our CF Care Centers, Chapter happenings, spotlights on special supporters, and more.  

In addition to being editor, I am also the director of our Greater New York Great Strides campaign.  I am excited to announce that as of December 6th, our 10 Great Strides 2012 Walks have raised $3.1 million!  Bravo to all of you – team leaders, team members, walkers, donors, sponsors and volunteers.  Together, you have done an outstanding job in helping us to continue funding research for drug development and, ultimately, a cure!

I am also delighted to share with you that Great Strides 2013 has officially been launched.   We hope you will join one of our 10 Walks. 

Please select from our Great Strides 2013 links above to start a team, join a team, register as an individual walker, or make a donation.

For information on becoming an official Great Strides 2013 – Greater New York Sponsor, please contact me at ssugarman@cff.org or 212-986-8783.  Sponsorship is Chapter-wide, with recognition at our 10 Walks!

We’re aiming high in 2013 with a goal of $3.5 million!  Together, we will reach it!

We welcome your comments, ideas and suggestions for future issues.  Please send them to me at ssugarman@cff.org or Kelli Klasko, Managing Editor, at kklasko@cff.org.

Best wishes for a very happy and healthy New Year,

Susan Sugarman
