2019 is a very special year for us because Erik has been named the Greater Kansas City Great Strides Ambassador!
Thanks to our wonderful family and friends, our team has raised over $45,500 for the CF Foundation!! We will forever be grateful to those who have joined us in this journey. Medical advances and treatments come straight from personal donations and your continued support is pivotal for a cure.
Erik was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at 6 months old. The devastating reality of this rare genetic disease is there is no cure. With the help of pancreatic enzymes, daily breathing treatments, airway clearance therapies and antibiotics, Eriks fights to live another day. He is our champion, our fighter, our HERO!
Please join us in the fight against CF by making a donation or joining Bubba's Breathe Team! We are hopeful, that with donations like yours, one day CF will stand for CURE FOUND!! We are forever grateful and thankful for your support!!
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. We walk for them. Please join us!!! All we need you to do to become a member of Bubba's Breathe Team is click on the "Join our Team" button.

Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.
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.
