Team Briggs is proud to represent Ricky Briggs, Jr. and Amanda Briggs who both courageously lived with Cystic Fibrosis. Our team, comprised of family members and friends of these incredible warriors, wishes to continue the fight against this incurable disease and carry on one of Ricky’s life missions of raising awareness for Cystic Fibrosis. He spent much of his life educating the public through his stand-up comedy, raising money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and promoting positivity among those suffering with the disease. Team Briggs is honored to continue the legacy of Ricky and Amanda by participating in Great Strides.
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. We walk for them. Will you join us? 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 a growing group of people committed to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis. Together, we are adding tomorrows to the lives of people living with CF by supporting the search for a cure.
Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.
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.
