Our team is participating in the Great Strides Walk to raise money to deliver more tomorrows to those with Cystic Fibrosis - and you can help too!
We'd like you to join our team and help us raise funds. If you can't make the event, you can also help us reach our fundraising goal by making a tax-deductible contribution. Every dollar, big or small counts!
Our team is walking in the Loving Memory of Nicole Ensminger. Nicole lived with Cystic Fibrosis but she didn't let it define who she was. It was very important to Nicole to raise money for the younger generation of CF patients, to give them hope that there will be a better tomorrow.
Did you know?
Cystic fibrosis is a genetic disease that affect the lungs and digestive system. Advances continue to be made in finding a cure, but your help is needed now, more than ever, to keep up the momentum of this life-saving research.
For the first time in the CF Foundation’s history, scientific opportunities are coming at a pace that is exceeding our ability to fund them. Now we need YOU to step up and be a hero to a patient in need.
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.
