The Tori's Troopers Story
Putting your money where our feet are since 1994.
Tori was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis in March of 1993 at seven months of age, and rather than sit around, we decided to go on the offensive. We soon learned about the wonderful people at Children's Hospital, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and the Great Strides walk, so we then decided to give CF a kick in the ass. Since CF has a very big ass to kick, we needed our friends and family to join us, form a team, and do some mutual whoopin'. Now, The CF Ass Kickers wasn't a very warm and fuzzy name, so team Creative Consultant Karin Roberts came up with the more user-friendly (and royalty-free) name of Tori's Troopers, and the rest is history. What started in 1994 with 5 walkers and $740 in donations now has dozens of walkers at multiple walk sites and generates $7,000 to $15,000 in donations each year.



Cystic Fibrosis 101
Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic disease. It is the number one genetic killer of children and young adults. A defective gene causes the body to produce abnormally thick mucus. This mucus leads to chronic lung infections and also interferes with digestion. At present there is no cure. The median life expectancy for a person with CF is about 38 years.

2005 Tori's Troopers
The crappy weather scattered the group so no team photo was taken, but here's #1 Trooper Jan Contento with a double dose of Tori.
2006 Tori's Troopers
Rounding up the team is like herding cats, but we managed to get nine of the 17 in the same place at the same time.
2007 Tori's Troopers
Some of the worst weather we've had for the walk in 13 years made a team photo even harder to get. We did manage to get photos of several soggy Trooper clusters.
