Cystic Fibrosis is a devastating genetic disease that affects approximately 30,000 children and young adults in the United States.
Research and care supported by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation are making a huge difference in the lives of those with CF.
For the 17th consecutive year, our family is walking in our local Great Strides walk at Lewis Morris Park in Morristown on Sunday May 19th. We need your help to meet our fundraising goal. Your generous gift will be used to help support the CF Foundation’s mission of finding a cure and improving the lives of those with CF. Your gift is 100% tax deductible.

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.
