For the 5th year in a row, please join the Mayo family for the Great Strides Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Walk
Houston Zoo Date: 5/16/2020
Check-in: 7:00 AM Event: 8:00 AM Distance: 3 Miles
Join our team and walk 3 miles inside the Houston Zoo
Why do we walk? We walk for Lincoln. Lincoln is Abigail's 4 year old nephew. Linc is amazing. He is curious, animated, super smart, handsome, sweet, and always on the go. He is blessed with incredible parents who take amazing care of Lincoln's busy daily treatment schedule of physio, medication, special dietary needs, treatment and his regular hospital and doctor visits to manage his cystic fibrosis. We are walking to raise funds and awareness to find a cure for this rare, genetic, life-shortening disease that makes it difficult to breathe.
Please join the Mayo family's team, Lincoln's League, and come walk with us to raise awareness and funds.
Can't make the walk? Please consider making a donation to Lincoln's League. Your gift is 100% tax deductible and 100% appreciated.
Thank you so much. The Mayo family.
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe.

Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.
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.
