CB v. CF: Can’t Breathe until Cure Found
The attorneys and staff of Cunningham Bounds enthusiastically participated in two Cystic Fibrosis Foundation events recently: “Jeans for Genes” allowed those who donated to the Foundation to wear jeans to work every Friday during the month of May. And, on Saturday, May 18th, a team of walkers participated in the “Great Strides Walk” held at Five Rivers Delta Resource Center.
Proceeds raised from both events will help fund research seeking a cure for Cystic Fibrosis.
Although the weather was hot and steamy the day of the "Great Strides Walk," team members completed the route twice!

Chili Cook-Off Raises $250,000 for Cancer Research
Braving very “chilly” conditions, more than 20,000 people attended the American Cancer Society’s annual Chili Cook-Off held March 2, 2013, in Bienville Square.
The crowd included a Cunningham Bounds’ team, who “joined the revolution” against cancer. Team members arrived before dawn and eagerly prepared gallons delicious chili. Their recipe received recognition as one of the “Top 20 Overall” chili recipes. The team also offered those attending opportunities to recognize friends and family who had battled cancer by adding their names to a “declaration of independence” and by wearing awareness ribbons.
The event raised more than $250,000 to fund cancer research.
