Walking for a Cure (and a Special Little Girl)

Ariana Davis is 10 years old. She is the daughter of Assistant Chief Shawn Davis of the Ridge Fire Department in Ridge, NY. She was diagnosed with Juvenile Scoliosis when she was five, and asthma and multiple allergies and seizures when she was six...


In an effort to raise more money, this year Ariana reached out to all the fire departments in Suffolk County for help in raising money to help find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. She asked each fire department to donate $1.00 per department member. The donations are still coming in and we are looking forward to see the total grow.

It would be awesome to get this effort to go national, “Firefighters for a Cystic Fibrosis Cure.” For more information on Cystic Fibrosis you can check out the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation website, www.cff.org. To donate to Ariana’s cause and her team you can go to http://www.cff.org/great_strides and search for Team Ariana Rose or Ariana Davis. The money raised will get use one step closer to a cure. Help us blow away Cystic Fibrosis.
