Sean is one of them. He is 13 years old. He is a son, a brother, a cousin, a friend and so much more. We walk for Sean and all those battling this life shortening disease. Will you join us?
A few words from Sean:
"I walk for them, I WALK FOR ME and I hope you will support me in my efforts.
Real progress has been made in the search for a cure, but the reality is that the lives of people with CF are still cut far too short. There still is no cure for this devastating disease. I STILL HAVE SO MUCH TO DO!!!!!!!

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.
