Please join me in a short 2.5 mile walk in Poulsbo, WA at Vinland Elementary school on June 6, 2020. Whether you donate your money or time, all are welcome to this great recognition event for finding a cure to the dreaded Cystic Fibrosis ie a genetic disease from birth which cuts the lifespan to about 30% for many individuals born with it. This year it especially hits home with the loss of Brianna Strand, daughter of Gateway Musician and long time friend, James Oas.
My goal this year is to raise $300 in support of finding a cure. With what we know and the advances in technology and pharmaceutical research (Melody Fulton), the cure with life sustaining medication is just around the corner. Great Strides Poulsbo is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.
Please support me!
Help me reach my fundraising goal by donating to my Great Strides fundraising campaign. Your gift will help add tomorrows to the lives of people with cystic fibrosis by supporting life-saving research and medical progress. Your gift is 100-percent tax deductible. Refer any questions to the Seattle office (206)701-5461. Thank you ~Bill Fulton aka @fireman77534
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.
