A fundraiser is planned for Saturday, July 12, to benefit a child with cystic fibrosis.

Charlott Lynn (Charlie) Hugunin was born Sept. 2, to Tim Hugunin and his wife, Jenny. Charlie was born five weeks early, and suffers from cystic fibrosis.

The CF Team, called Charlie’s Angels, is hosting a bike ride, beginning at the Flat Tire Lounge in Madrid, on the High Trestle Bridge Trail. Flat Tire Lounge is excited to be a supporter of the team and its mission. Money raised will be used at the Cystic Fibrosis Clinic at Blank Children’s Hospital in Des Moines, where Charlie receives care. Organizers of the event like the fact that the money raised is kept here locally and that the local children with CF benefit directly from the fundraising work.

The team needs the public’s help to make this fundraiser a success. They need riders to join them. Cost is $10 per person, $20 per family. There are also lots of really nice auction items, including a bike and helmet, and a stay at the beautiful Cedar Valley Resort on the Root River Trail in southeast Minnesota.

If you have questions about the event, please contact Lynn Moore at: reedlynn@huxcomm.net.
