Welcome to Team StratAcuity: Caring. Hiring. Curing.
As you may know, StratAcuity was founded shortly after the diagnosis of cystic fibrosis in my daughter Kate in 1999. Since those sad early days of diagnosis and family adjustments, StratAcuity has been an ardent supporter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Why? Because for 13 years, we've seen first hand the miracles that come in the form scientific advancements through the wondrous and relentless efforts of our biopharmaceutical clients and friends. Thanks to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and all those who have supported the CFF since it was founded in 1955, never has a day gone by that we have not lived without HOPE. For this, my family & Team StratAcuity cannot ever say thanks enough ... it's impossible.
Sadly, in 2000, the first year StratAcuity started "walking", the average life expectancy for a CF patient was 27. Today, it's 38 ... while this progress is impressive, 38 simply isn't acceptable to us. That's why we're digging deep as a company and encouraging everyone we know to join us. Never before have we been so close to a treatment or cure that will allow people born or living with CF to have the opportunity for a long, full life.
May 19th, 2013 marks the first time Team StratAcuity will walk in Boston (having supported New Hampshire & Maine walk sites through the years). We're especially excited about 2013 and we hope you are too! Coincidentally ... May 2013 is also the month that my daughter Kate is scheduled to be a clinical participant in the all-important Vertex Kalydeco + VX-809 clinical trial. So it's fair to say, we're seeing the power and value of events like Great Strides first hand!
The goal of Team StratAcuity is raise at least $10,000 with a walk team of over 100 people!
WE KNOW WE CAN DO IT!
MORE IMPORTANTLY, WE KNOW THAT PEOPLE WITH CF DESPERATELY NEED US TO DO IT!
AND, WE WILL! BUT ONLY With A LITTLE HELP FROM OUR FRIENDS!
