Team Aubrey Anne Day 2019! That is our new name for the Great Strides Walk bc Aubrey thinks it's her day...which it is in a way!!
Saturday, May 18, 2019, PLEASE come out and spend the morning with us. It's a mini-reunion while raising money and awareness for a cure. It is a great time for a great cause. My dad will be cooking Jambalaya and Potatoes as always. I hear they will have more Jambalaya cookers so we need more people to come out and eat all the food! They always have extra stuff. Princesses for the kids, the kid booth with all kinds of goodies. FOOD FOOD FOOD!
The actual walk itself is as long as you want it to be. It's at Highland Road Park. It's a paved path and if you get tired you can stop at any time. Everything is within sight distance.
I know not everyone has money just laying around but if you can donate we would really appreciate it. I could bore you with all the medical technology that's come out in the last 6 years we have been affiliated with CF but I won't. Just know the drugs that Aubrey is taking currently is keeping her and her lungs healthy and they are so close to a cure. And these medicines are all mainly funded by the CFF. This organization is all about spending money to find a cure. 99 cents of every dollar is spent doing that. You can google the organization and see how they appropriate their funds.
We will be selling Tshirts again this year and this is where most of our fundraising comes from. I will be posting the link on facebook and email.
JOIN OUR TEAM! Sign up to walk and share on your page for donations. Even if you can only donate $5 we are grateful. Every little bit counts!
If you don't "do" the internet (my parents lol) I will take your donation and put it online for you.
MOST IMPORTANT! Come out and spend the day with us and celebrate what the CFF does for our CF warriors!
***One side note..bc CF affects the lungs this is a NON SMOKING event. Make sure if you do smoke please walk away from the event area. THANK YOU!***
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. I walk for them and hope you will support me in my efforts.
Real progress has been made in the search for a cure, but the lives of people with CF are still cut far too short. There still is no cure for this devastating disease. By walking today, I am helping add tomorrows to the lives of people living with cystic fibrosis. Will you join me? Support me by making a donation to my Great Strides fundraising campaign today!
Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.
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.
