Mount up and join us May 4th for the Great Strides Walk to help find a cure for CF and remember our brother, son, uncle and friend Ryan. Ryan passed away on February 14th, 2011 from CF. His laugh and amazing personality and loyalty to his family and friends is missed every day. The McLaughlin family walks in memory of Ryan and also to save the life of his sister Ashley, who battles CF every day. Ashley is 35 and a mother to Stella who is 10. This past year Ashley has struggled with some serious life threatening infections, but is fighting hard for a future with her daughter Stella.

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.
