Welcome to the team page for Lil' B and the Pack. This team was created to support of Briana Houlihan, an incredible adult with CF, and we can't wait to participate in our third Great Strides walk! If you have been fortunate enough to meet and get to know Briana, you know how truly amazing of a person she is. Briana tends to bring smiles to anyone she's around and refuses to let CF dictate her life. Even on days when CF is trying its hardest to get the better of her, she will never let it. This team was put together so that anyone, friends, family, or even strangers, can show their support for Briana, and to contribute towards the ultimate goal of finding a cure. Last year, we were able to raise $3,175 and this year we are hoping to go even higher and reach $3,500! Anything and everything truly means a lot to our team and to the CF community as a whole. We welcome anyone to our team that would like to walk or help fund raise, so please feel free to sign up! We hope to see you there!
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.
