SHOOT FOR THE CURE 2019 - DISPLAY BOARDS
Gratitude and appreciation for Central Middle School's Keith Hodson, Allied Tech Teacher and his Community Services Class for taking on the Display Board project for our 2019 Event!
We'll follow the progress of the creation and assembly of 30 sandwich-board displays which will be used at the Sporting Clays Event May 10th, 2019. Each board will display not only the Station Number along the trail, but they will have space for the biographies of our Alaska loved ones who live with Cystic Fibrosis. These displays will also display "Final Flight" the reverent set of photos of those who have lost this life long battle.
I had noticed projects outside the school, as I drove home each day.
When I inquired, Keith Hodson made a quick decision and his students enthusiastically took on this project! After a brief presentation to the class, with some information about cystic fibrosis, and the nature of the lung disease and it's effects, a few students had further ideas, of involving their churches or families! Of being a part of the effort! I'll post progress as they move forward.
Please reach out and thank those you know at Central Middle School!
"You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it" Thank you to Keith Hodson and his students for being a part of our battle!
COMING DECEMBER 16TH - SOLSTICE TREE TOUR
SHOOT FOR THE CURE is excited to participate in the NSAA Solstice Tree Tour at Kincaid Park!
The event is a tour of the trees along the first 2.5 k of the Mize Loop. Local businesses sponsor trees along the route decorating them to create a winter wonderland along one of the most well-loved trails at Kincaid.
SFTC's tree with have large ornaments depicting Alaskan's with cystic fibrosis, colorful globes, with bright orange lights (for sporting clays) and purple lights (the color of cystic fibrosis)! We will have hot (adult flavor) cider and hot chocolate and our signature sporting clay snickerdoodles!
People are able to walk as well as ski on the groomed trails for this event! There will be a bike corral for bikers to leave their bikes and walk the loop. Sponsors will provide hot chocolate, coffee, adult beverages, and s’mores at warming stations along the way. This is a very popular, family friendly event that brings together people of all ages.
Consider coming out and meeting our Board members, and hear more about our Spring Banquet and Event. Take a moment to personalize a face to the challenging disease affecting so many Alaskan's.
