Welcome to the 6th annual Frank Family Great Strides walk. This is a time where we can all gather together to help raise money for cystic fibrosis (CF) and for our very own Louis Henry. Henry was born in February 2015 and diagnosed with cystic fibrosis less than a week after his birth. We walk to raise donations that will support the much needed research that can help individuals like Henry live long, strong, healthy lives.
If you would like to donate or participate in our walk please click on the appropriate tabs on this page. We appreciate anything you can do to help Henry and those who have cystic fibrosis. If you want to know more about cystic fibrosis feel free to visit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation website for more information on what CF is and how it affects those who have it. If you want to know more about Henry please click on his name below and visit his personal page.
Thank you so much from Henry and all of us for your support
Important note on Attendance at Foundation Events:
Infections can exacerbate CF symptoms and worsen lung function, so we ask attendees at Foundation-sponsored events to observe the following best practices to reduce the risk of germ transmission:
Regularly wash hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel.
Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your inner elbow.
Maintain a safe 6-foot distance from anyone with a cold or infection.
To further reduce the risk of cross-infection, the Foundation’s attendance policy recommends that all people with CF maintain a safe 6-foot distance from each other at all times while attending an outdoor Foundation-sponsored event. All Great Strides walks are non-smoking events.
