The Cystic Fibrosis Great Strides Walk-A-Thon took place Saturday, May 18 2013 in order to raise funds for the CF Foundation. Three members of the Loranger High School dance team participated in this event. These young ladies were walking in honor of the late Amy Holton Kinzey and Richie Wyckoff. Amy, who lost her battle with CF, is the daughter of Dale and Leanne Holton who are both employed at Loranger High School. Richie Wyckoff, who recently received a double lung transplant as a result of this disease, is the cousin of Leighton Dempster and the grandson of Mrs. Joyce Chambers, a retired teacher and counselor who worked at Loranger High School. As a member of Richie’s Pepsi Posse’, Leighton helped her team win first place, raising over $5000.00 for this wonderful organization that is making “great strides” in research that is being used to find a cure for the dreaded disease.
