As many of you know my sister, Rosie, has Cystic Fibrosis. Before moving to New York, I had walked in Great Strides every year since I was 6 years old. After living in NYC and having to miss the walk these past 5 years, I decided to create my own team for Great Strides Manhattan. If you are in the NYC area and looking for an excuse to enjoy the nice spring weather on Sunday May 19th, please join me! It’s a 3K walk starting at 10am in South Seaport. THANK YOU!!!
Will you join me? Please consider donating to my Great Strides fundraising campaign today!
Great Strides is a fun event that provides a fantastic opportunity for family, friends, students, and colleagues to come together to make a difference in the lives of people with CF -- join our team today!
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.
