Team Breathe is the official Great Strides Team of the Children's Hospital Los Angeles Cystic Fibrosis Care Center. We were the 14th CF Care Center to be accredited by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in 1961, and we have been providing excellent CF clinical care, education, and research for over 55 years. We provide medical care for over 165 children and young adults with CF. Our interdisciplinary team of physicians, nurses, dietitians, social workers, psychologist, respiratory therapists, pharmacists, researchers, pulmonary function technicians, occupational therapists, and administrative staff strive to enhance and extend the lives of our CF patients through excellent clinical care and research. Please join us at Great Strides in Griffith Park on April 25, 2020 If you can't join us, please consider donating to help cure CF and improve the lives of those affected. All are welcome to join our team and join in the fight to cure CF.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, indoor events sponsored by the CF Foundation are strictly prohibited at this time. Scheduled outdoor events must adhere to strict requirements to minimize the risk of COVID-19 infection. Events may be subject to change at any time based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local health officials.
IMPORTANT NOTE ON ATTENDANCE AT OUTDOOR FOUNDATION EVENTS:
To minimize the risk of COVID-19 infection, attendees at CF Foundation events must adhere to the following requirements:
Practice physical distancing and maintain at least a safe 6-foot distance from persons outside of their household at all times
Face masks strongly encouraged and expected to 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 not attend CF Foundation events where there is risk of interacting with someone outside of their household.)
Follow basic infection, prevention and control practices by regularly washing hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel, 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. People with CF should maintain a safe 6-foot distance from persons outside of their household at all times.
