Dear Family and Friends:
Hi there! On Sunday, April 28th we are participating in the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s GREAT STRIDES walk because our daughters have CF.GREAT STRIDES is the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's largest and most successful national fundraising event. We ask for your generous gift and know that it will be used efficiently and effectively, as nearly 90 cents of every dollar of revenue raised is available for investment in vital CF programs to support research, care and education. When the CF foundation was created in 1955 the children with CF were not expected to see their first day of elementary school. Today more than 40% of the CF patient population is age 18 or older.
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a devastating genetic disease that affects tens of thousands of children and young adults in the United States. Research and care supported by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is making a huge difference in extending the quality of life for those with CF. However, we continue to lose precious lives to CF every day. That's why your help is needed now more than ever to ensure that a cure is found sooner - rather than later.
Any amount you can donate is greatly appreciated!
Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those with CF! Thank you for supporting the mission of the CF Foundation and GREAT STRIDES!
PLEASE FORWARD THIS E-MAIL TO ANYONE YOU KNOW!!
We thank you all and thank God that we can celebrate 19 years of their Life! Our humble thanks,
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.
