Help Alexis and thousands of others like her beat cystic fibrosis!
CF is a life-threatening genetic disease. And the largest genetic killer of children and young adults in the US. Real progress has been made, but we there is still no cure. And the lives of young people with CF are still cut far too short. But we still have hope: New research has put us closer to a cure than we've ever been. But we are still years and millions of dollars away. We dream of a day when CF stands for Cure Found. We need your help to get there. Please donate today and help us beat cystic fibrosis.
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.
