Each year, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation hosts hundreds of walks across the country to give communities the opportunity to support of the foundation’s mission to cure cystic fibrosis. The funds raised from these events are put towards research and drug development, promoting individualized treatment and ensuring access to high-quality, specialized care with the goal of allowing cystic fibrosis patients to live full, productive lives.
On Saturday, April 28, JES Holdings employees, families and furry friends attended the Columbia, Missouri Cystic Fibrosis Great Strides Walk in Cosmo-Bethel Park.
Employees of JES Holdings started participating in this event in honor of Michelle Sharp, a dedicated Asset Manager for Affordable Equity Partners. Ms. Sharp was active in raising awareness of cystic fibrosis, a disorder affecting her husband, before her passing in 2008.
