65 Sister Holds Events for Great Strides Fundraising



65 Sister’s team, Moving for Mk, has begun its fundraising efforts for the Lee University Great Strides Walk, which will take place on Saturday, March 30, to raise awareness and money for the Cystic Fibrosis (CF) Foundation.

65 Sister, an initiative founded by Jade Goss, recently held a “Galentine’s” event to raise money and awareness for CF, where participants were taught modern calligraphy. Goss started 65 Sister in spring 2017 in honor of her sister Marykate, who lived with CF, a chronic disease affecting the lungs and digestive system, for 18 years.

The team will continue to fundraise with a floral wreath-making and lettering workshop on Saturday, March 16.

“We believe small efforts can produce great impact,” said Goss. “To me CF is personal, but I believe as a community this story matters to us all. Together we can make a difference in the lives of each person living with CF.”

The Great Strides event will rally hundreds of community participants and Lee University students to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

“Great Strides is one of my favorite events of the year,” said Goss. “It creates a space to locally focus on sharing the CF story and raise funds to find a cure.”

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is a nonprofit donor-supported organization dedicated to attacking cystic fibrosis from every angle. Its focus is to support the development of new drugs to fight the disease, improve the quality of life for those with CF, and ultimately find a cure.

Tickets for 65 Sister’s March event are available on its Facebook page.
