The 21st Annual Hornell Great Strides for Cystic Fibrosis Walk will take place on Saturday, June 8th. Registration will begin at the Steuben Trust Company at 11:00am with the walk beginning at noon.
Please see the Argentieri's Avengers team page for an update on the Argentieri girls.
The amount of love and support you have all shown is truly appreciated. However, the fight is not over, and we need to continue to explore all promising avenues of research, including those that are pioneering new technologies to repair the defective CF gene, so that one day CF can stand for Cure Found. Mike (Mike Palmer) has agreed, again this year, to sponsor our team, “Mike Palmer Heating & Air Conditioning”. Won’t you please join my team? It’s easy! If you would rather just sponsor my team, please help my friends and others like them in the fight against CF by donating online.
Let’s make this the biggest and best Hornell Great Strides Walk yet! Thank you so much for your help in making CF stand for Cure Found.
Teresa Sexton & family
P.S. Save the Date: The 13th Annual CF golf tournament is scheduled for Saturday, August 10, 2019, at Twin Hickory Golf Club in Hornell.
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.
