First I want to say that I miss all of you! Colin is doing well. He graduated with a master's degree in kinesiology with an emphasis on sports nutrition in May, 2018. His health is good. For that we are blessed.
And now for the important part of this message. There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. We walk for them and hope you will support us in our efforts. Real progress has been made in the search for a cure, but the lives of people with CF are still cut far too short (trust me). There still is no cure for this devastating disease. By walking, we are helping add tomorrows to the lives of people living with cystic fibrosis. Will you join us? Support Colin's Best Friends (aka Colin's Commandos by our t-shirts) by making a donation to our Great Strides fundraising campaign today!
Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families. Come join us on May 18th if you'd like. We'd love to have you be a part of our team. The walk this year for the Atlanta area is at Suwanee Town Center, 330 Town Center Avenue, Suwanee, GA 30024 (for GPS purposes). The walk starts at 9:30AM. If you would like a t-shirt and don't have one yet, please send me your t-shirt size. It would be wonderful to see you again!
Please support us! Help us reach our fundraising goal by donating to our Great Strides fundraising campaign.

And thank you so much.
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.
