The Atlanta insurance community has once again come together to form Insure the Cure to support the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Insure the Cure was formed in 2011 in honor of Clay Snellings’ daughter, Emily. Emily was born with cystic fibrosis, a life-threatening genetic disease that primarily affects the lungs and digestive system. Currently, there is no cure. Since its inception in 2011, the insurance community has raised over $1.4 million. The industry has banded together agencies, companies, brokers and re-insurers who on most days are fierce competitors, but have united to find a cure for Emily and the 30,000 others living with CF by participating in Great Strides Atlanta on Saturday, May 19th at Suwanee Town Center.
Liberty Mutual is once again sponsoring this year’s event and NEW this year will form a team to walk in Great Strides Atlanta. We invite you to join our efforts by registering for our team: http://fightcf.cff.org/goto/libertymutual. Please consider walking with us and making a donation to support cystic fibrosis.
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.
