PetCareRx Acts as Corporate Chair for the 2010 GREAT STRIDES Charity Event in Lido Beach

This Leading Online Pet Pharmacy Was the 2010 Corporate Chair for the Lido Beach Great Strides, a Charity Walk to Benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation

LIDO BEACH, NY--(Marketwire - October 7, 2010) -  PetCareRx is proud to have been the corporate chair for this year's GREAT STRIDES event in Lido Beach, New York. GREAT STRIDES is the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's largest and most successful national fundraising event, with more than $35 million raised in the last year alone. The team at PetCareRx was pleased to have this opportunity to use their success as America's most affordable pet pharmacy to give back to such a worthy cause. More than 50 PetCareRx employees showed their support by walking this year, raising more than $20,000 for the cause.

"We are so proud to have PetCareRx as a corporate partner in the quest to find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. Thanks to their generosity and support we are getting closer to the ultimate goal of a cure for CF," said Karen Blank, Director of Special Events, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a devastating genetic disease affecting tens of thousands of children and young adults in the United States. With research and care supported by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, it is possible to extend the quality of life for CF patients. Many lives are still lost to this disease every day, however, which is why the organization continues to hold national fundraising events like GREAT STRIDES. Since the first GREAT STRIDES walk in 1989, more than $214 million has been raised to support the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's research and care programs.

The recent GREAT STRIDES event in Lido Beach, New York was a great success thanks to GREAT STRIDES Committee members Blake Brossman, Kristy Fabrizi and Mike Sciortino. Brossman represented PetCareRx as the corporate chair for this year's event. To learn more about Cystic Fibrosis and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, visit
