'Three-Day Stampede' coming up in Bristol

Posted: Updated:
BRISTOL, Vt. -

The Three-Day Stampede is coming up this weekend in Bristol.

It's the 20th anniversary of the fundraiser, which has raised $1.3 million so far for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

The event includes yard sales, barbecues, dancing and crafts.

This year, there is also a new film called "How to Live to be 100" that highlights the community's involvement.

For the family that started the Stampede, the fight against the lung disease is personal.

"What we learned about CF was that we were going to see a lot of daily things that needed to happen for Kayla," said grandmother Bonita Bedard. "But the most important thing for us was thinking about the future. How do we guarantee a better future for Kayla?"

The movie will be screened this Thursday, July 25, at 8 p.m. on the Bristol Green. The Stampede kicks off Friday and lasts through the weekend.
