Yes, you might think it's a little early to be thinking about Great Strides...well not for me. As soon as our event is over, I'm already thinking about what we can do better/different for the next year. The next Great Strides event I'm participating in will be in DeKalb on April 14th, 2012 - so about six months away - that leaves plenty of time to plan!
This year, I'd really like to get team t-shirts going again for my team Colleen's Friends & Family. I tried to get them going about four years ago, but it didn't turn out as well as I had hoped, so I kind of gave up on the idea, but I'd love to try again. The DeKalb site really means a lot to me (as many of you know), so I would love to have an awesome turn out and awesome team t-shirts to go along with it. A fellow cyster (female with CF) was making team t-shirts for her team from a site, so I used the same site and came up with a few 'rough drafts' to start. I am willing to switch anything around, change colors/fonts, pretty much up for any suggestions to make these shirts something that my team would enjoy wearing every year for Great Strides.

If you couldn't tell, I really like the "Find A Cure!" for the back, since that's pretty much the whole point of Great Strides = raise awareness and raise funds to support research to find a cure for CF. It's the front that I really have no idea what to do with. I also really like the tye-dye, but I'm up for changing them to any color. I just would love us all to have the same matching (standing-out!) t-shirts to make this 2nd annual DeKalb GS even better than it was last year!
