Mantra is proud to support the Cystic Fibrosis foundation for a great cause. The Great Strides event is a national event that takes place all over the country during different times of the year.
There are many families that are struggling with the costs of care and need help with medications and treatments. The Great Strides event is a way to give these families a way to offset the cost.
The donations received are raised by the families for the foundation as a whole to help everyone with CF. The Orion's Army team is one of Utah's walking teams to help bring more awareness to this cause.
We encourage you to participate in this wonderful walk and to show your support for Orion and other families that are effected by this disease.

Orion Forbush is an eight year old boy who was born on December 25, 2008 and diagnosed shortly
thereafter with cystic fibrosis. Cystic Fibrosis or CF for short, is a rare genetic condition that affects the respiratory and digestive systems of the body and has become a reality for some 70,000 families world wide. Orion is a very special young man and is active in several sports such as soccer, basketball, and baseball. He loves camping, video games, drawing, reading, and Pokemon. A very spirited being, this incredibly strong young man does not give up on anything he wants and he will accomplish amazing things in his life. Orion's Army is a group of family and friends working together to raise awareness and funds critical to supporting the cystic fibrosis foundation. It would be an honor to have you join us.
