There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis & they stuggle every day just to breathe! Our 9-yr old son, Marcus, is one of them.
Every day, thousands of CF patients & their fam sit/lay in hospitals all around the world hoping & praying that a Cure for CF will be found soon!
The amount of meds that we put into Marcus' little body all day every day would shock you if you don't know a CFers daily routine just to breathe.......to live!!!!!
And the CFF is the DRIVING FORCE behind sooooo much of why Marcus & so many others are feeling such HOPE!!!! THIS IS WHY I AM WORKING SO HARD TO RAISE MONEY FOR THIS WALK!
We walk for him, & all those w/ CF, and hope you will support us in our efforts. Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.
Real progress has been for those who have CF, but there is still NO CURE for this devastating disease and many lives are cut far too short. By walking today, WE CAN HELP ADD TOMORROWS to the lives of people living with cystic fibrosis.

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.
