Win a beautiful quilt with our Cystic Fibrosis raffle!

After raising more than $1,500 last year, Nantahala Physical Therapy is proud to once again partner with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to help save a life.

Our goal is again $1,500 and we’re collecting donations in a number of ways:

  • The lure of great barbecue!  Drop by April 20th from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. at the Big Bear Shelter on the Greenway and pick up a plate of delicious barbecue for $5 per plate.
  • While you’re enjoying your barbecue, you can also bid on silent auction items or purchase something from our bake sale.
  • Participate in a raffle for a chance to win this lovely handmade quilt, donated by a patient.

Purchase one ticket for $1, or 6 tickets for $5. The drawing will occur at the end of the barbecue.

  • If you can’t make it to the Greenway on the 20th, drop by our office and make a donation.  Our therapists will be sure to think of you as we’re walking in the Great Strides Walk on May 3rd.
  • Or, if you feel like moving your feet for the cause, feel free to join us May 3rd at the Great Strides Walk on the Greenway with your own donations raised!  We’d love to see you there.

Nearly 90 cents of every dollar of revenue raised is available for investments in programs that support CF research, care and education, so it’s a very worthy cause.

If you have any questions and would like to see the quilt in person, stop by our office and speak to any therapist. And thanks for helping make a difference!

Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system.  More than 70% of patients are diagnosed by age 2.  In the 1950′s, few children with CF lived to attend elementary school; today, thanks to advances in research and medical treatments, many people with the disease can expect to live into their 30′s, 40′s and beyond.
