Thanks for visiting Annie's Angels Team fundraising page! We are happy to connect with you!
This year marks our 22nd year walking to end cystic fibrosis. We are grateful beyond words to all of you who have walked with us in person and in spirit. This generousity has fueled remarkable research. We now have significant treatments for 90% of the CF population. Annie is in the 90% and we have seen tremendous improvement in her health this past year. Our hearts ache for the 10% who are still waiting for a treatment. We are not done until all CF patients have a therapy and a cure.
These therapies, while not a cure, have slowed down the progression of lung disease. This means that WHEN the cure is found, CF patients will still have healthy lungs that can take them far into adulthood. The CF Foundation continues to shepard amazing science that will help CF families. The work they are doing may even provide insights for other genetic diseases.
This year we will be doing a virtual walk accross the country on June 5. We will be protecting those with CF and our wonderful family of supporters. Please consider helping Annie and the thousands of other CF patients by funding the cure with us.

Thank you for your support. We are changing the face of this disease that has taken too many of our friends. In their honor and in the hope of curing everyone that lives with CF, Annie’s Angels will continue to make Great Strides!
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.
