Welcome to our team fundraising page supporting Cole's Champions! To view a short video and see what Cole's up to these days go to www.colesfight.com.
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis (CF). They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends and co-workers who can struggle every day just to breathe. One of these children is our 15 year old son Cole and we are asking for your help today to aid us in our fight against CF.
Cole was diagnosed with CF when he was only 1 month old. We really didn't know what to expect for our son. We also didn't know what kind of support was already in place for families like ours and what amazing work had already been taking place for decades before Cole's diagnosis. Because of organizations like the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation we now have an incredible amount of hope for Cole and all those living with CF. More importantly, the research that they have helped to fund has led to a number of advances that are extending the lives of those living with CF while we continue striding towards a cure...today, we're asking you to help us continue this fight.

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.
