In Mama Llama’s neighborhood, three children in the same family have been afflicted with cystic fibrosis. Their parents have invited Bahama Llama to participate in the most heartwarming animal adventure of his life, and that is to help raise money toward funding research on this cruel disease. Of course, Bahama Llama is honored to help!
So on Saturday, April 30, 2011, Bahama Llama will participate in the GREAT STRIDES fundraiser. He will walk up to three laps around the beautiful man-made lake at East Lake Village in Yorba Linda, CA., and he is looking for volunteers to help sponsor him.
As you know, Bahama Llama is a little overweight. Okay, a lot overweight. He weights 350 pounds! His Peruvian llama cousins weigh about 30 pounds less. Oh my! So this walk will be good for Bahama Llama. It will also be good for the three Montelone children and others with life-threatening lung and digestive orders caused by cystic fibrosis.
If you would like to sponsor Bahama Llama in the GREAT STRIDES event, please click this link to make a donation in any amount.
Bahama Llama thanks you for encouraging him to take as many steps as he can to help the three children. Their parents thank you for caring about their kids. And the CF Foundation thanks you, too, for helping to fund research to cure cystic fibrosis.
And if you’ve never seen a llama, then you might enjoy coming to the GREAT STRIDES event on Saturday, April 30, 2011, to meet Bahama Llama, to feed him his favorite snack, or to take a picture with him. And don’t worry; he doesn’t spit! He’s a former show llama, so he’s fluffy, gentle, friendly and very well-mannered.
