Join Team Lilly and help add tomorrows for Lilly Belle and the 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis!
Team Lilly was created shortly after our youngest daughter Lilly was diagnosed with CF at 2 months old. Despite the despair and helplessness that comes with a diagnosis of a fatal genetic disease like CF, we refuse to let CF define us. Team Lilly is our way of fighting back - our goal is to do our part to raise awareness of the disease and the funds necessary to find a cure and better treatments until a cure is found.
We raise money and walk for Lilly, but we also walk for the moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. We walk in support of the families and friends who must watch their loved ones battle to do the very things we take for granted every day. We CAN make a difference in the lives of those afflicted with CF.
Team Lilly is one of the largest teams to participate in the Lexington Great Strides Event and we want to continue the tradition this year. Will you join us by walking as a member of Team Lilly at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 16, 2020, at the Whitaker Bank Ballpark in Lexington, Kentucky?
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 our commitment to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis. Together, we are adding tomorrows for Lilly and thousands of other children and adults living with CF by supporting the search for a cure.

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.
