Imagine... just for a moment, not being able to breathe.
That IS Cystic Fibrosis ~ it is a disease that steals your breath and can eventually steal your life.
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with Cystic Fibrosis. They are husbands, wives, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends and co-workers who struggle every day just to simply breathe ~ something most of us take for granted.
We walk for them. We raise money for them. 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 own fundraising. We would love to have you join us at the walk, if you would like, on Saturday, May 18th at Greer City Park. Registration will begin at 9:30 a.m. If you would rather simply make a donation, we would appreciate that, as well. Just click on the "Donate to a Team Member" button to do so.
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 would love to have YOU learn more about Cystic Fibrosis, so you can help us educate others about this breath-stealing, terminaldisease. Please consider joining Team Tysinger so you can help add tomorrows for someone with CF. Come on out and be a part of something great!
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.
