Hey all! I am so psyched to be doing the Great Strides CF walkathon again this year.
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with Cystic Fibrosis. The CF Foundation has turned this conditional from a childhood disease into one that adults carry and can live with.
There are a few different ways you can contribute:
-Donating (the simplest!)
-Joining my team as a fundraiser- you can attend the event, or fundraise remotely. you would collect donations- even if it's only from one or two people it can be very impactful
-Showing your support of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and the CF Community in person at the June 3rd walkathon in Manhattan. There is usually free food and activities for kids. We ask for a small donation in attendance.
Email me with any questions @ firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
