Team We Care 4 Leclerc was established in 2009 with the love and support of family, friends, and coworkers. Hazel was diagnosed with newborn screening at 10 days old, Edgar was tested soon after and diagnosed with CF at 18 m9nths old. It's a daily routine to manage CF. They are becoming a big part of managing meds and treatments as they get older. We Thank You all for your continued support. This is not a sprint but a marathon. It's been truly humbling to see our team grow through the years.
Please come join us this year as always we have a fun filled morning with plenty of prizes, yummy treats, music, and of course walking planned.
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. We walk for them. All we need you to do to become a member of our team is click on the "Join our Team" button. From there you can start fundraising. Together, we are adding tomorrows to the lives of people living with CF by supporting the search for a cure.

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.
