Dear friends, Join team FIVRA Sunday April 26th. Join our team and help add tomorrows to hundreds of kids affected with CF FIVRA, Fundacion Inspira Vida Respira Amor invites you to participate in Walk Strides 2019, Sunday April 26th in MIami Zoo. We walk every year in celebration of the life of Mikey Santa Cruz who passed away in 2012 because of complications from Cystic Fibrosis. Mikey was a force to be reckoned with, and always the life of the party wherever he went. Mikey lived life to the fullest and always enjoyed extreme sports like sky diving, bungee jumping, and deep sea diving. He was never held back by his condition. Mikey is greatly missed by his family and friends and he will always live on through our foundation and in the hearts of all his loved ones.
Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families. FIVRA and you will be supporting life-saving research and medical progress. The funds we raise together help accelerate innovative research and drug development, as well as advance care. We want your company, we need your support. Your gift is 100-percent tax deductible.
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.
