The silver lining of the pandemic is that Great Strides is virtual - so our friends and family near and far can walk with us for a cure!
On Saturday, May 8th make plans to walk in your neighborhood as part of Team: UNTIL IT'S DUNN!
It's been eleven years since we lost our nephew, Matthew to Cystic Fibrosis and our family continues to do all we can to find a cure in honor of Matt. Now, more than ever the CF Foundation needs our fundraising to continue their research to treat and ultimately cure this disease.
What is Cystic Fibrosis (CF)? It is a devastating genetic disease that affects tens of thousands of children and young adults in the United States. Research and care supported by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation are making a huge difference in extending the quality of life for those with CF. However, we continue to lose precious lives to CF every day.
We would like to ask any of you to support this cause and honor Matthew. Bob and I will be walking with Zach and Tyler around our 'hood in honor of Matthew. Just click on "JOIN JULIE'S TEAM" if you want to walk "with us" --we'd love to have your support!
If you would like to simply make a donation to CF --just click on "DONATE TO JULIE". Any amount you can donate is greatly appreciated. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those with CF – Until it’s DUNN! Thank you for supporting us with this worthwhile and very heartfelt cause! We appreciate your support so very much!
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.
FOR YOUR SAFETY AND THE SAFETY OF OTHERS:
For the health and wellbeing of the CF community, those eligible to be vaccinated are required to be fully vaccinated to join us in-person for the event. If you are not fully vaccinated, we invite you to participate virtually if that option exists.
We do not plan to ask for you to provide proof of vaccination. We are, however, counting on the fact that you appreciate the potential consequences of exposing members of the CF community to COVID and will abide by this requirement.
We cannot guarantee that all people in attendance at the event, including participants, sponsors, volunteers, and vendors, have been fully vaccinated.
