Hey guys! The CF walk for Atlanta is May 16. I haven’t been able to do a walk in over 4 years now due to being too sick, not able to make long term commitments-always needing to cancel. I would like to walk this year with my family and any friends who want to join my team would mean a lot to me. Each team has to raise money, normally teams have goals. It would be amazing to be able to raise $1000, thats asking a lot though. I have decided to name my team “CPR CREW” (I’m thinking a funny lifeguard look to our shirts lol). Funnily enough my name is Cortney Paige Roeder, hence “CPR”. My family named me before I was diagnosed with a lung disease 3 months after my birth. Crazy ironic but its pretty cool. Anyways, I’m going to have shirts made for our team. If anyone is wanting to walk with my team then you can sign up -
There are options to donate to a walker and to join a team.
If you want to walk then please let me know or sign up by the end of March, only because I would like to put everyones names on the back of all the shirts, its okay if you don’t sign up by then too. After March 31 I will be able to have a cost on the Team shirts. At the walk if you raise a certain amount of money then you will also get a Great Strides Cystic Fibrosis shirt, they are nice every year. It’s all pretty easy and I’m very excited to be able to walk this year. All kids and family are welcome also, this is going to be awesome!our team and help us get one step closer to a cure for cystic fibrosis!
A word from CF --For too long, cystic fibrosis, a rare, genetic disease, has robbed people of tomorrows – progressively limiting their ability to breathe and tragically shortening life. There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with CF. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers who struggle every day in the face of this devasting disease. We walk in Great Strides for them.
Will you join us?
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.
To participate, just click on the "Join our Team" button. From there, you can make a donation and start fundraising.
By joining our Great Strides team and making a donation, you will be part of a tenacious and passionate group of people committed to ending this disease. Together, let’s make CF stand for Cure Found!
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.
