We walk for every family who loves someone with CF, but specifically for our own. We are all cousins of an amazingly strong young man, Will Corcoran, who has Cystic Fibrosis. April 2018 marked Will's 21st Birthday, thats a BIG Deal for someone with CF! Come celebrate with us!
Will is one of the 'oldest souls' you will ever meet ;) An incredibly kind animal lover, who is an outdoor enthusiast and huge Philadelphia Eagles fan!
As a family we used to host an annual bike-a-thon event in Will's hometown of Weston Connecticut... we have since all grown up and many of us have moved away from that area. We are still very connected and want a way to 'get together' to raise funds and awareness.
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.
