A Hippie's Daughter is participating for the second year in a row in the Great Strides Santa Rosa 5k walk for Lauren Molasky Fierst. She has been battling CF for 35 years and is currently awaiting a lung transplant. She has a rare mutation of Cystic Fibrosis that the most recent breakthrough drugs cannot help. In walking, we hope to raise money for more research & development for her specific type of CF.
Lauren is an incredible mother, wife and creative individual. We want to do anything we can to help fight this beast of a disease that she battles each and every day.
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. One of them is Lauren. We are walking for her and I hope you will support me in my efforts. Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families. Real progress has been for those who have CF, but there is still no cure for this devastating disease and many lives are cut far too short. By walking today, I am helping to add tomorrows to the lives of people living with cystic fibrosis. Will you join me?

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.
