Hayley's Cure Quest team is back and so is Griffin the Golden Fluffalo!. Griff also invites you to follow him on Instagram! A guaranteed smile!
As many of you know, this is a cause near and dear to our hearts. There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis who struggle every day just to breathe - including my dad. My dad always tells us that we are walking for the children and teens who have cf. If walking for him is not motivation enough, seeing all of the young people who struggle with this disease makes us want to do so much more.
This is a devastating disease that requires hours of daily treatments, numerous medications and hospitalizations just to try and stay healthy. There is no cure and lives are often ended much too soon.
Our team is walking on May 4th for my dad and all our friends 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. Click the "Join our Team" or "Donate to a team member" to make a donation.
Your contribution is tax deductible! We thank everyone who has supported us in our quest over the years. There has been great progress but we can not stop until a cure is found. We can not do this without your help. Unitl it's done.
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.
