Join Team TARAdactyl to make the future of CF a little brighter.
Tara was diagnosed with CF when she was 7 months old. She was fortunate to live a fairly normal childhood but started getting progressively sicker as she got older. In November of 2017, she received lifesaving double lung and liver transplants. While her routine of care has changed since the surgery, she still has CF and always will.
The CF Foundation has been an integral part of helping Tara and the other 30,000 Americans with CF like her. They are leading the pack in venture philanthropy and are committed to funding and finding new treatments and eventually a cure for this disease.
Please join the TARAdactyls and show your support for the CFF.
You can purchase a team T-Shirt where part of the proceeds will be donated back to the CFF.
Great Strides is a fun event that provides a fantastic opportunity for family, friends, students, and colleagues to come together to make a difference in the lives of people with CF -- join our team today!
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.
