While we’re unable to actually take part in the Great Strides walk this year since we’re expecting an addition to our family in the next few days, I wanted to quickly reach out to gather support for the national team led by my sister for the tenth (!) straight year.
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation continues to do incredible work towards finding a cure for this disease and ways to help keep Reid as healthy as possible. As I say every year, we’re so lucky to be surrounded by such generous friends and family that allow us to contribute so much towards the national team to support such a great organization.
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.
