Hello, family and friends! Zach Pack is back in action and excited for the 2020 Great Strides walk! This year it will take place on May 17, 2020 at O'Donnell Park in Milwaukee. Check-in starts at 10:00 AM and the walk will begin at 11:00 AM.
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are husbands, wives, parents, siblings, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. On May 17, 2020, we will walk for them. To become a member of Zach Pack, just click on the "Join our Team" button. From there, you can make a donation, join the team to walk with us, or just learn more about cystic fibrosis. Your support means so much to us, and we feel very lucky to have so many family and friends who support our mission to fight for a cure for cystic fibrosis.
By joining Zach Pack and making a donation, you are joining a growing group of people committed to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis. We now have four drugs that treat the underlying cause of the disease! The work that Cystic Fibrosis Foundation does is absolutely pivotal in these advancements and we could not be more excited to support and fundraise. We will not rest until all those with cystic fibrosis have a cure. The time is now. Thank you for your support!!
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.
