It is hard to believe that we lost a member of our family, Chris Simon, over two years ago to Cystic Fibrosis. He was a loving son and brother, husband and father, and friend to all he met. He was taken too early by this terrible disease. A disease that also took his little sister Emily at the young age of 19.
We are in year 3 of this team! Let's make it bigger and better than last year! Please join our team for a walk in memory of Chris and Emily Simon. If you cannot join the team, please make a donation to our group. And help spread the word! The more on our team the merrier! With everyone's help, we can raise enough money to put an end to this awful disease, and create a brighter future for all.

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.
