Please join our team in the fight to find a cure for Arjun and the cystic fibrosis community. Arjun was born in December 2013, and was diagnosed with CF at 2 months old. In the past 6 years, he's been in the operating room 10 times, spent 3 months in the NICU, and has perservered through countless hospital stays. Despite all of these obstacles, Arjun’s resilience and spirit is inspiring - he no longer has an ostomy bag, and he continues to thrive every day.
While the average life expectancy for people with CF is currently 37 years old, real progress has been made in the search for a cure. Our family would be incredibly grateful for your support in finding a cure for Arjun and others with cystic fibrosis.
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.
