Weekend walk to raise cystic fibrosis awareness

May 29, 2013 by  

The Poulsbo Cystic Fibrosis Walk-a-Thon is a fundraiser designed with all proceeds going to the Cystic Fibrosis organization, which seeks to combat a lung disease that affects more than 30,000 American citizens each year and currently has no cure.

There are many other activities planned prior to the walk, which should be an ideal family event. The organizers may have used poster printing, flyer printing and other printing services to promote this worthy cause to people in the region.

Before starting the walk, Kristin Lopez, a Zumba instructor, will lead people through a quick warm-up exercise. Participants will enjoy a number of activities before the walk, including monster trucks from the area, derby cars, hydroplanes, and club cars, plus the fire department has planned to have an engine available for children to explore.

The walk begins at Vinland Elementary School and travels along NW Pioneer Hill Road until the halfway point, where there will be refreshments, a short break, and some nice surprises. After the break, the return journey traces the first half of the walk back to the starting destinations. Dogs, horses, bikes, strollers, and any other non-motorized form of transportation is welcome.

Admission is free and people from nearby areas like Silverdale are invited to join in and support a great cause. The walk will leave the Vinland Elementary School, located at 22104 Rhododendron Line NW in Poulsbo, Washington, at 9:00 am this Saturday, June 1.
