I want to share with the CF Bridge of Hope an event that we are carrying out to raise funds for Fundafiq, Fundación de Fibrosis Quística de Ecuador (Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Ecuador).
In previous years we have done individual races, but now we have joined with 3 more foundations of the city of Cuenca to reach out to as many participants as possible.
The event will take place this Sunday, June 16, with a 5 km race, at the end of which we will have a health fair with free medical exams, talks on psychology and nutrition. We will give information about catastrophic and chronic diseases, among them cystic fibrosis.
The funds raised will be used for projects of each of the foundations. We have visited with several media, press, radio and television stations, always emphasizing the seriousness of the disease and making known that it is CF, since in our environment is virtually unknown.
We are very happy to achieve our 2nd objective this year, the first was the Congress and now the race.
I attached videos of 3 patients of the foundation, who always collaborate and now wanted to make a video inviting people to participate in the race. The patients are: Arianna Abad, Camila Ugalde and Jefferson Vizhco.
It is a pleasure to share this good news with the CF Bridge of Hope.
