SAVE THE DATE - SUNDSY SEPTEMBER 8TH for the GREAT STRIDES WALK at 9AM st the HOWARTH PARK GAZEBO in SPRING LAKE
Joshua was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at 5 months old. This is a devastating disease that requires daily treatments, numerous medications and hospitalizations just to try and stay healthy. While there are promising medications being tested, and working for some with cystic fibrosis, there is currently no cure and lives are often ended much too soon.
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has made it a personal goal to keep researching until a cure is found for everyone with CF. Events like these and your donations help to directly fund this research and new medications to help those with CF live healthier lives.
Our team is walking on September 8th for Joshua and all others who live with the challenges of this disease daily. We hope that you will join us or show your support with a donation. You can be part of this quest and add tomorrows to the lives of those with CF.

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.
