Team McDonnell is back and ready to make CF stand for Cure Found!!!!!!!!!
Miracles are happening in our lifetime, and you are helping us to be a part of that!
To see why we fight for a cure, check out the Video that Matt made for our Breath of Hope fundraiser:
The walk this year is on May 18th in Naperville at the Riverwalk. Registration begins at 8:30 and the walk kicks off at 10AM
About 90 cents of every dollar raised by the CF Foundation funds research and programs to cure CF. By donating to the CF Foundation, you are helping to ensure that people who have CF are living longer and more productive lives than ever before.

CF Foundation's B. Cepacia Policy Because of the risks to people with cystic fibrosis, individuals with confirmed positive sputum culture for Burkholderia cepacia complex should not attend this event. This is because B. cepacia can be passed between individuals who have CF through close proximity. B. cepacia infection in a person with CF can cause serious respiratory illness and, in some patients, may lead to death. Despite this policy, there may still be some individuals with B. cepacia in attendance. B. cepacia is not a risk for otherwise healthy individuals. For alternative ways to participate and for information about this policy, please contact the CF Foundation at (800) FIGHT-CF or visit our Web site at www.cff.org. Consult your CF care center physician with medical questions.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, indoor events sponsored by the CF Foundation are strictly prohibited at this time. Scheduled outdoor events must adhere to strict requirements to minimize the risk of COVID-19 infection. Events may be subject to change at any time based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local health officials.
IMPORTANT NOTE ON ATTENDANCE AT OUTDOOR FOUNDATION EVENTS:
To minimize the risk of COVID-19 infection, attendees at CF Foundation events must adhere to the following requirements:
Practice physical distancing and maintain at least a safe 6-foot distance from persons outside of their household at all times
Face masks strongly encouraged and expected to be worn in accordance with local guidelines. (Note, children under two years of age should not wear masks due to safety concerns and therefore should not attend CF Foundation events where there is risk of interacting with someone outside of their household.)
Follow basic infection, prevention and control practices by regularly washing hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel, covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your inner elbow.
Persons with CF should consult their physician before participation in any in-person event as they may be at an increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19. People with CF should maintain a safe 6-foot distance from persons outside of their household at all times.
