For the past 15 years, we (our family) has walked in the Great Strides Walk. You could say - it has become a tradition.
We walk because our youngest daughter (15) and nephew (10) have CF. These two kids are thriving. Thriving, . . . Thanks to the work of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, their medical team, and most importantly the hard work that do to stay healthy
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 breath.
Real progress has been made for those who have CF, but there is still no cure for this genetic disease and many lives are cut far too short. By walking on May 4, we are helping add tomorrows to the lives of people living with cystic fibrosis. Will you join us? Please consider making a donation to our Great Strides fundraising campaign today!
Your gift will help add tomorrows to the lives of people with cystic fibrosis by supporting groundbreaking research and medical progress. Your gift is 100-percent tax deductible.
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.
