Students walking in the rain for cystic fibrosis.
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -
Sixty people tied up their laces for a walk to end cystic fibrosis.
Despite a downpour, the rainy weather didn't dampen the spirits of the dozens who lined up at Chris Larsen Park for the Great Strides Walk.
The event was organized by members of the Health Sciences Organization from North, East, and West High Schools.
Cystic fibrosis is a genetic disorder that affects lungs, the liver, and pancreas.
A mother who's son was diagnosed with the disorder says she was overwhelmed by the support.
She says, she's thankful young people are getting involved to spread the message out about the disorder that she says it not widely known.
"It makes me feel very good, and it helps me give hope for my son too that his future, even with people who don't even know what it is or had no connection to it are helping to support it," Michelle Bata said.
Special raffles were held, along with t-shirts to raise money.
