Click here to watch a video about Harlen and his Hoofers:
Please join us in our walk and fundraising to help sweet, sweet Harlen have the best chance at a long healthy life! This little guy has already proven that he is a strong, brave, fighter and we can fight beside him and his awesome family.
This is Harlen. He is six years old. He was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis in utero, and while he has had his share of health scares, he is doing well. He has already shown us how incredibly brave he can be. Harlen loves singing, the ocean, books, superheroes, Halloween, all things Harry Potter, and his dogs. Please help us raise as much money as possible to help give Harlen as many tomorrows as possible....
Or walk with us! We'd love to have you join!
Please walk, donate what you can, and spread the word.
Thanks, Much Love and Be Brave!
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. We walk for them. Will you join us? All we need you to do to become a member of our team is click on the "Join our Team" button. From there you can make a donation and start your fundraising.
By becoming a member of our team and making a donation, you are joining a growing group of people committed to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis. Together, we are adding tomorrows to the lives of people living with CF by supporting the search for a cure.
Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.
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.
