FIVRA, Fundacion Inspira Vida Respira Amor invites you to participate in Walk Strides 2019, Sunday April 28th at Virginia Key, Key Biscayne. We walk every year in celebration of the life of Mikey Santa Cruz who passed away in 2012 because of complications from Cystic Fibrosis. Mikey was a force to be reckoned with, and always the life of the party wherever he went. Mikey lived life to the fullest and always enjoyed extreme sports like sky diving, bungee jumping, and deep sea diving. He was never held back by his condition. Mikey is greatly missed by his family and friends and he will always live on through our foundation and in the hearts of all his loved ones.

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.
