Hello everyone! Just wanted to let you all know Shelby's Great Strides walk for Cystic Fibrosis is May 16. If you would like a shirt for the walk please contact Michelle!
The fundraising money is used to find a cure for CF. Please...think about it like this, our sweet Shelby isn't the only person with CF that benefits from these fundraisers. Shelby just started Orkambi...it's a newer drug that helps improve her health/life. It helps Cfers with their lungs, improves weight gain, and more. If it weren't for all those other people in the past who have raised money, Shelby wouldn't have this amazing opportunity.
We would love for all of you to come and support Team Shelby at the walk. If you don't have the money to donate, we totally understand. Just come and walk or even sit and show your love!!!!
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.
