Hello everyone! Just wanted to let you all know Shelby's Great Strides walk for Cystic Fibrosis is next month. May 18. We are making shirts and if you would like one, please let me know sizes. $20 per shirt and all proceeds are going To the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation under team Shelby Grace!!!!
The fundraising money is used to find a cure for CF. Please...think about it like this. our sweet Shelby isn't the only person with CF that benefits from these fundraisers. Shelby just started Orkambi...it's a newer drug that helps improve her health/life. It helps Cfers with their lungs, improves weight gain, and more. If it weren't for all those other people in the past who have raised money, Shelby wouldn't have this amazing opportunity.
We would love for all of you to come and support Team Shelby at the walk. If you don't have the money to donate, we totally understand. Just come and walk or even sit and show your love!!!!
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.
