Hi everyone, the Great Strides Walk is just around the corner. The attached picture is Jae and Dr. Caplan, his CF doctor, at a past walk. Jae would be 31 today if he had not succumbed to the devastating affect Cystic Fibrosis had on his lungs and pancreas. I so wanted to see my son grow up and make a difference in the world.
With your generous donation, I know this destructive disease can be stopped in its tracks. I cannot give up the fight for a cure, and I hope you can support me in my efforts. I walk for Jae and all of the moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe.
Help me reach my fundraising goal by donating to my Great Strides fundraising campaign. Your gift will help add tomorrows to the lives of people with cystic fibrosis by supporting life-saving research and medical progress. Your gift is 100-percent tax deductible.
I would love to have you walk with me on May 21 in memory of Jae. It is a three mile leisurely walk with water and snacks along the way. You will also be rewarded at the end with a delicious lunch provided by Jim 'N Nick's BBQ. Yum Yum!!
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.
