2020 has sure been a different kind of year, hasn't it?
Unfortunately, Great Strides had to be postponed this year- but we're looking forward to walking with everyone on our rescheduled date of Sunday, September 27th -- Team: UNTIL IT'S DUNN!
It's been ten 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. If you'll be in Atlanta - you can walk on Sunday, September 27th at the Great Strides Walk. Bob and I will be there with Zach and Tyler walking for Matthew. Just click on "JOIN THIS TEAM" if you want to walk with us --we'd love to have you join us!
If you would like to simply make a donation to CF --just click on this link. 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!
Foundation-Sponsored Indoor and Outdoor Events and Gatherings
The Foundation is closely following the evolving coronavirus outbreak. We will continue to monitor coronavirus guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and assess whether we need to change any scheduled events.
To reduce the risk of getting and spreading germs at CF Foundation-sponsored events, we ask that everyone follow basic best practices by regularly cleaning your hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel, covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your inner elbow, and maintaining a safe 6-foot distance from anyone with a cold or infection. Medical evidence shows that germs may spread among people with CF through direct and indirect contact, as well as through droplets that travel short distances when a person coughs or sneezes. These germs can lead to worsening symptoms and speed decline in lung function.
To further help reduce the risk of cross-infection, the Foundation's attendance policy recommends inviting only one person with CF to attend the indoor portion of a Foundation-sponsored event at a specific time. For the outdoor portion, the Foundation recommends that all people with CF maintain a safe 6-foot distance from each other at all times.
