Home Federal Bank, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Home Federal Bancorp, Inc. of Louisiana, has been named Community Champion for their dual sponsorship of both the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Great Strides 30th Anniversary and Shreveport-Bossier City’s Finest.
Great Strides and Shreveport-Bossier’s Finest are two annual events that aim to promote CF awareness and honor those in our community who continually commit their time and effort to making a difference in the lives of children and adults living with cystic fibrosis.
For 30 years, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s largest fundraising event has supported the mission to cure cystic fibrosis and raise awareness for this rare, genetic disease. The annual Great Strides 5k Walk provides the community the opportunity to collectively take steps toward making helping to better the lives of those with CF.
Shreveport-Bossier’s Finest honors a select group of local men and women who are committed to professional growth through a guided fundraising and awareness campaign. Each year, honorees are nominated and recognized for exemplifying leadership and excellence in the community.
“We truly feel privileged to be the Community Champion and Dual Sponsor for Great Strides and Shreveport-Bossier’s Finest this year,” said HFB President, Jim Barlow. “At HFB, we are very passionate about lending our efforts to accelerate research and life-saving drug development for the 130+ patients across Shreveport-Bossier, and we are proud to aid in providing ongoing care and advocacy for these brave individuals as well as their families.”
