Toby is one of the 2019 Great Strides Ambassadors for the Oregon/SW Washington Chapter of the CF Foundation!
Join Toby and help add tomorrows! Toby was born with CF. We have had ELEVEN amazing years with this bright, bubbly boy and hope to have many more, but CF is a progressive disease. The CF Foundation is working on finding new drugs to help manage Toby's disease and HALT THE PROGRESSION that CF causes in his body.
Toby is one of approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. We walk for him and all of the others who have CF. Will you join us? 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 make a donation and start your fundraising.
By becoming a member of our team and/or making a donation, you are joining a growing group of people committed to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis. Together, we are adding tomorrows to the lives of people living with CF by supporting the search for a cure.
Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families. We will try to do as many of the walks in Oregon/SW Washington as we can this year. We are signed up for all of the ones in May/June. Pick a date and come join us!
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.
