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.
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.
