Helping to Find a Cure for Cystic Fibrosis

Helping to Find a Cure for Cystic Fibrosis

Residents and friends of a local Twiggs County family took part in a fundraiser over the weekend to help find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis.  The McDaniel family of Danville Georgia has a son, Marshall McDaniel (7), and a nephew, Phillip Austin (19), that both suffer from cystic fibrosis.  The McDaniel and Austin families every year take part in the Middle Georgia Great Strides Walk that is held at the Geico Insurance Campus in Macon Georgia. 

 Great Strides is the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's largest national fundraising event. More than 250,000 walkers come together across the country to help find a cure for CF.  In 2012, nearly $40 million was raised to help support life-saving research, quality care, and education programs related to cystic fibrosis.
