Are you ready to help support our team as we strive to make CF stand for "Cure Found"? We would love to have all of you join us, as we enjoy a beautiful walk along the Vancouver waterfront, lunch, DJ, and a silent auction, to name a few!!
This disease is NASTY and we need to find a cure immediately to relieve George and all of the other people with CF! George doesn't know what it's like to live a "normal life". He knows what it's like to cough from morning to night and during the night while he tries to sleep. He has to take 40+ pills a day, nebulizer and chest therapy twice a day just to breath half way decent. Could you imagine someone sitting on your chest all day long? That's what it feels like for a person with CF to breathe. George's PFT's (pulmonary lung function) hovers around 50% when he's healthy. It went down to 29% this last year!!! Do you know how scary that is for all of us?!?!?! I can't even begin to tell you...especially as his Mother!!! Every day we get up and don't think twice about breathing....it just comes natural. Let's give all of those suffering from this DISGUSTING disease a chance to breathe without force and discomfort. PLEASE join our team this year and help us raise enough money to make CF stand for "Cure Found"!!! If you aren't able to join our team, please consider making a donation. No amount is too little....every penny counts towards a cure for my baby boy!!! Thank you in advance. If you have any questions or would like additional information about the walk or Cystic Fibrosis, please feel free to contact me.
Join our team and help add tomorrows!
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. We walk for them. Will you join us? All we need you to do to become a member of our team is click on the "Join our Team" button. From there you can make a donation and start your fundraising.
By becoming a member of our team and making a donation, you are joining a growing group of people committed to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis. Together, we are adding tomorrows to the lives of people living with CF by supporting the search for a cure.
Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.
Important note on Attendance at Foundation Events:
Infections can exacerbate CF symptoms and worsen lung function, so we ask attendees at Foundation-sponsored events to observe the following best practices to reduce the risk of germ transmission:
Regularly wash hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel.
Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your inner elbow.
Maintain a safe 6-foot distance from anyone with a cold or infection.
To further reduce the risk of cross-infection, the Foundation’s attendance policy recommends that all people with CF maintain a safe 6-foot distance from each other at all times while attending an outdoor Foundation-sponsored event. All Great Strides walks are non-smoking events.
