Which makes this year our 6th Great Strides Walk. And Kolby's first as a big brother :)
Kolby is still superhero crazy! And he absolutely loves costumes, riding his scooter, Roblox and playing basketball.
Our Kolby was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at just five weeks old. CF is a rare, genetic, life-shortening disease that affects the respiratory and digestive system. Although Kolby is doing well thanks to his amazing team of doctors and the CF Foundation, he has spent his entire life taking daily meds, breathing treatments and lots of chest physiotherapy. As well as the many doctor visits.
Our family strives on a positive mindset which has helped us tremendously through Kolby's CF journey. We know in our hearts that a cure is right around the corner and we will not let this horrible disease define our baby boy!
Join us virtually for this year's Cystic Fibrosis Great Strides Walk!
Thank you for supporting our Kolby and his fellow CF soldiers!!!
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, indoor events sponsored by the CF Foundation are strictly prohibited at this time. Scheduled outdoor events must adhere to strict requirements to minimize the risk of COVID-19 infection. Events may be subject to change at any time based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local health officials.
IMPORTANT NOTE ON ATTENDANCE AT OUTDOOR FOUNDATION EVENTS:
To minimize the risk of COVID-19 infection, attendees at CF Foundation events must adhere to the following requirements:
Practice physical distancing and maintain at least a safe 6-foot distance from persons outside of their household at all times
Face masks strongly encouraged and expected to be worn in accordance with local guidelines. (Note, children under two years of age should not wear masks due to safety concerns and therefore should not attend CF Foundation events where there is risk of interacting with someone outside of their household.)
Follow basic infection, prevention and control practices by regularly washing hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel, covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your inner elbow.
Persons with CF should consult their physician before participation in any in-person event as they may be at an increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19. People with CF should maintain a safe 6-foot distance from persons outside of their household at all times.
