To the Editor:


Each year in May our family participates in the Great Strides Walk in New Canaan for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in support of our daughter Charlotte who is 14 and has cystic fibrosis, a chronic life-shortening disease that impacts her lungs and digestive system.

In addition to our friends and family, this year we were lucky to have the support of the Darien High School Boys Lacrosse team as well. Blue wave pride at its best! One of their own, Logan McGovern, inspires the team as he lives with cystic fibrosis and continues his lacrosse career as a student athlete at Bryant University. We want to thank Coach Jeff Brameier and his boys for coming out to support Logan, Charlotte and the fight for a cure for cystic fibrosis. Our team raised over $23,000 this year thanks to the incredible support from our family, friends and this community.
