Welcome to our 17th year raising funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation as TEAM MISSY! Your unbelievably generous support, whether you're with us at Bde Maka Ska (Lake Calhoun) in Minneapolis, MN or there in spirit, has been amazing!! And this year in 2022, we will hopefully be able to walk outside in person again!
In 2021, you my friends, BLEW the doors off any wishful thinking of what this community could raise for Cystic Fibrosis Research! Together we surpassed the huge milestone of raising $500,000 over 16 years of TEAM MISSY fundraising and in 2021 alone, were able to raise our highest amount in a single year by reaching just over $63,000!
Your contributions have helped to make so many advancements in the treatment of Cystic Fibrosis that patients today are able to have medications that manage this once deadly childhood disease... BUT THERE IS NO CURE YET! And that is why we continue to fight and to continue to raise these life changing dollars. I appreciate your lifelong support for this mission.

Cystic fibrosis is a devastating genetic disease that affects 30,000 children as well as adults in the United States. Research and care supported by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation are making a huge difference in the lives of those with CF.

Much love. Big smiles. Just breathe. :)

IMPORTANT NOTE ON ATTENDANCE AT FOUNDATION EVENTS:
To reduce the risk of COVID-19 the Foundation is taking steps to host safe events for our community. Please be advised that events may be subject to change at any time based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local health officials.
To help minimize the risk of COVID-19, we ask that attendees at CF Foundation events follow these steps:
Where mandated, practice physical distancing and maintain at least a safe 6-foot distance from persons outside of their household.
Face masks are encouraged and should 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 only attend outdoor CF Foundation events where they are able to distance and stay within their family group.)
Follow basic infection, prevention and control practices by regularly washing hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel, and by 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.
For indoor events, it is CFF policy to invite only one person with CF to be in-person at the event at a time. For outdoor events, people with CF should maintain a safe 6-foot distance from persons outside of their household at all times.
FOR YOUR SAFETY AND THE SAFETY OF OTHERS:
For the health and well-being of the CF community, we strongly encourage that participants be fully vaccinated and have received the CDC recommended booster shot when joining us in-person for the event.
Please be advised certain localities and venues may require you to be fully vaccinated and show proof of vaccination. We will communicate these requirements in event communications.
We are counting on the fact that you appreciate the potential consequences of exposing members of the CF community to COVID-19 and will not attend an event if you are feeling ill or have been recently exposed to COVID-19.
We cannot guarantee that all people in attendance at the event, including participants, sponsors, volunteers, vendors, or others, have been fully vaccinated.
