Our sweet Sicilee was diagnosed at birth due to meconium ileus. She had surgery at just 2 days old and spent 32 days in the NICU at ETCH. Since then, she has had a total of 3 hospitalizations, with 2 of those occuring within a month. She currently takes a total of 8 oral medications daily & 2 inhaled medications. We are so incredibly thankful for our friends and family that help us and support us every day. We could not be in this fight without their love and support. Please, please, please consider donating to our fight against CF and search for a cure! We would love to have you join us at the walk and help raise awareness for CF! Our sweet Sicilee and many many others, deserve a cure!

Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.
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.
