Thank you for visiting Team Whitt's Page! We are extremely grateful that our family and friends want to help CURE Cystic Fibrosis. This will be our 19th Annual Walk and we are so very thankful for your steadfast support every year!
CF is a rare inherited life-shortening disease that causes persistent serious lung infections that over time limit the ability to breathe and also damages the digestive system. When Walter was born, the median predicted age of survival was in the 20’s. For a baby born today with CF, that number has risen into the 40’s. The incredible advances in research and medical treatments have happened thanks to the generosity of so many like you.
We would be very grateful if would consider making a 100% tax-deductible donation to our team for life-saving research to continue. Any amount you can give is greatly appreciated!
Also, we would love if you joined our team on Saturday, June 1st on the National Mall in Washington, DC!
Thank you so much for investing in a CURE for Cystic Fibrosis - we are deeply grateful for your support!
Foundation-Sponsored Indoor and Outdoor Events and Gatherings
The Foundation is closely following the evolving coronavirus outbreak. We will continue to monitor coronavirus guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and assess whether we need to change any scheduled events.
To reduce the risk of getting and spreading germs at CF Foundation-sponsored events, we ask that everyone follow basic best practices by regularly cleaning your hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel, covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your inner elbow, and maintaining a safe 6-foot distance from anyone with a cold or infection. Medical evidence shows that germs may spread among people with CF through direct and indirect contact, as well as through droplets that travel short distances when a person coughs or sneezes. These germs can lead to worsening symptoms and speed decline in lung function.
To further help reduce the risk of cross-infection, the Foundation's attendance policy recommends inviting only one person with CF to attend the indoor portion of a Foundation-sponsored event at a specific time. For the outdoor portion, the Foundation recommends that all people with CF maintain a safe 6-foot distance from each other at all times.
