Kristie graced the lives of many and quickly captured the hearts of all she encountered with her gorgeous smile and her contagious laugh. Kristie never let CF define her. She was in charge of her life and CF sometimes just caused a bump in the road. Kristie was amazing, brave, funny and strong. We miss her terribly but we know she is now breathing easy. This is why my friends and I are participating in the annual Great Strides walk for cystic fibrosis. We walk in honor of our friend Kristie. She will forever be the reason we don't take one single breath for granted. Please consider helping us in any way you can. Thanks in advance!
Important note on Attendance at Foundation Events:
Infections can exacerbate CF symptoms and worsen lung function, so we ask attendees at Foundation-sponsored events to observe the following best practices to reduce the risk of germ transmission:
Regularly wash hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel.
Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your inner elbow.
Maintain a safe 6-foot distance from anyone with a cold or infection.
To further reduce the risk of cross-infection, the Foundation’s attendance policy recommends that all people with CF maintain a safe 6-foot distance from each other at all times while attending an outdoor Foundation-sponsored event. All Great Strides walks are non-smoking events.
