*Join our team and help add tomorrows! This will be our 12th year walking. We have a great team!!The walk this year is again at the Cleveland Zoo and is on Saturday May 16th with registration at 8 a.m. and the walk begins at 9 a.m.
*Leland has had a great year with his CF. He is a very active boy that is in tune to his CF. He will openly tell other children he has it and doesn't mind doing treatments and meds in front of other children and adults. He is full of energy and personality for sure and I hope that will be his blessing for getting through things as he gets older. I started raising funds for Cystic Fibrosis before Leland was born for my nephew Kyle. I will continue until there is a cure for them.
*By becoming a member of our team and making a $50.00 min. donation you will get free admission to the zoo on walk day, lunch and a Great Strides t-shirt.
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.
