2005 -- The
GREAT STRIDES Walk is the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's largest fundraising
event of the year. In March, Anne Rhodes signed up to participate
in the May 21, 2005 Denver area walk in support of Cody.
Cody's Uncle Ivan printed shirts with Cody's picture for the Walk.
Mike & Sara, Cody's friends from Denver Children's
Hospital, made ribbon pins for us to wear in Cody's honor.

Special thanks to Cody's Uncle Dick and Dick Walter Auto
for running this beautiful advertisement.
Anne and Cody's family participated
in the walk in loving memory of Cody. Cody's family asked that
memorial donations in Cody's name be given toward the Great Strides
Walk. Anne's first fund-raising goal was $500, but that number
was quickly surpassed by the generous outpouring of love for Cody
from family, friends, and the wonderful community of Bozeman.
By the May 21 Walk, donations in Cody's name totaled over $13,000.
Other family and friends participated for Cody in Great Strides Walks
in Billings, Montana and Portland, Oregon. In total, over $15,000
was raised in loving memory of our beautiful Cody.
