Please come out and join us in raising awareness and money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in funding to find the cure!
Team Aubrey Anne Day May 16, 2020
Saturday, May 16, 2020, PLEASE come out and spend the morning with us. It's a mini-reunion while raising money and awareness for a cure. It is a great time for a great cause. My dad will be cooking Jambalaya and Potatoes as always. I hear they will have more Jambalaya cookers so we need more people to come out and eat all the food! They always have extra stuff. Princesses for the kids, the kid booth with all kinds of goodies. FOOD FOOD FOOD!
The actual walk itself is as long as you want it to be. It's at Highland Road Park. It's a paved path and if you get tired you can stop at any time. Everything is within sight distance.
I know not everyone has money just laying around but if you can donate we would really appreciate it. I could bore you with all the medical technology that's come out in the last 6 years we have been affiliated with CF but I won't. Just know the drugs that Aubrey is taking currently is keeping her and her lungs healthy and they are so close to a cure. And these medicines are all mainly funded by the CFF. This organization is all about spending money to find a cure. 99 cents of every dollar is spent doing that. You can google the organization and see how they appropriate their funds.
We will be selling Tshirts again this year and this is where most of our fundraising comes from. I will be posting the link on facebook and email.
JOIN OUR TEAM! Sign up to walk and share on your page for donations. Even if you can only donate $5 we are grateful. Every little bit counts!
If you don't "do" the internet (my parents lol) I will take your donation and put it online for you.
MOST IMPORTANT! Come out and spend the day with us and celebrate what the CFF does for our CF warriors!
***One side note..bc CF affects the lungs this is a NON SMOKING event. Make sure if you do smoke please walk away from the event area. THANK YOU!***
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. I walk for them and hope you will support me in my efforts.
Real progress has been made in the search for a cure, but the lives of people with CF are still cut far too short. There still is no cure for this devastating disease. By walking today, I am helping add tomorrows to the lives of people living with cystic fibrosis. Will you join me? Support me by making a donation to my Great Strides fundraising campaign today!
Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.
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.
