Collin was born on April 7th, 1992 and diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis when he was an infant. In his short 21 years, there were many medications, breathing treatments and hospital stays but off road racing helped him live life to the fullest. Collin’s family and friends now participate in the yearly Great Strides walk to raise funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and have created Team 1018 in Collin’s memory. Please consider joining us on walk day or registering as a virtual walker to show your support.
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.
