"Great Strides: Taking Steps To Cure Cystic Fibrosis" is the largest fundraising event held by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to raise money for CF research and care. Synteract and Rempex employees will participate in this walk-a-thon on Sunday, May 6 at the Powerhouse Park in Del Mar to help fund a cure for the disease. The three-mile walk will bring co-workers, friends and families together in support of the work of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Employees from both teams increased their fundraising efforts by hosting educational events and internal activities to raise additional donations. This is the second year the two companies have participated in the walk.

"Synteract and Rempex are pleased to be able to help the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in its fundraising efforts and education of the community about such debilitating diseases," said Stewart Bieler, Chief Operating Officer at Synteract. "With the support of our team walkers, we are participating in the foundation's efforts to fight Cystic Fibrosis and help find a cure."

CF is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive systems of about 30,000 children and adults in the United States. There are about 1,000 new cases diagnosed with the disease each year. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has been fighting to find a cure and welcomes supporters like Synteract and Rempex.

Those who are interested in donating to the foundation or participating in the walk can contact Synteract representative Kathy Kaplan at 760-268-8200 or the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation at www.cff.org.
