Finding a cure for this genetic disease is cause close to the heart of all of us here at Herbert Financial Group. Kate, the daughter of one of our longtime clients and friends was tragically diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at birth. After seeing the debilitating effects this disease had on Kate and her family, Tim knew he had to join the fight to find a cure. This will be our 11th year sponsoring and participating in the walk to raise funds for this amazing cause and help give children, just like 14-year old Kate, the chance for a long and healthy life. Last year, we were able to raise over $5,000 to aid the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in moving one step closer to finding a cure.
We ask you to please join us in the fight by making a donation to our walk team...we are determined to help give Kate a million more tomorrows!
The 2019 Cystic Fibrosis Walk is taking place May 18th at 10:00 am at the River Woods Park in Auburn Hills, Michigan.
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.
