In 1955, children with CF didn’t live to see kindergarten. Funds raised through the Cystic Fibrosis foundation help people with the disease live well into their thirties.
Groupware Technology has been a supporter of Cystic Fibrosis research for many years and its President and CEO Mike Thompson sits on the Board of Directors of the Northern California Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. “We are a committed supporter of the Cystic Fibrosis foundation, which has helped fuel dramatic advances in treatment and care having a positive impact on the quality of life of the individuals with the disease” said Mike Thompson.
“Great Strides is the most important fundraiser we have all year, and we are grateful to every walker who joins us,” said Robert J. Beall, Ph.D., president and CEO of the CF Foundation. “Each dollar raised brings us closer to finding better therapies and ultimately a cure for this devastating disease.”
