The movie Five Feet Apart portrays a very grim picture of Cystic Fibrosis. Sadly, it’s a very accurate portrayal for many patients. Stella(lead female character) is 16ish & on the lung transplant waiting list. Without a cure, it’s the inevitable story for all CF patients. In addition to raising money for a cure this year with Great Strides, I want to offer an alternative picture of a 16 year old girl with CF. Parents of young patients need to see hope. Your donations will turn that hope into reality.
The drugs in the CF pipeline will change lives! The advancements made thus far would not be possible without the CF foundation & the donations of our past supporters. The future breakthroughs still need your help. Please consider joining our team @ Wickham Park on 5/18. Not possible? We’d be grateful for a donation of ANY amount through the Great Strides link. Thank you

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.
