Julia and Sydney are identical twin sisters that have cystic fibrosis. They were diagnosed at 9 years old and have been going to All Children’s Hospital ever since. Julia has been admitted to the hospital many times, while Sydney has only been hospitalized a handful of times. They are joining this years walk to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Thank you to everyone who donates!!
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.
