As many of you know, our sweet Gracie was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at just two weeks old. Grace is now 3 years old and doing amazingly well - truly thriving and getting so big! While the last three years have been challenging at times, there have been far more ups than downs and we are so lucky that Grace is doing so well. We are blessed to be her parents and she is blessed to be a part of such a great and supportive community that is fighting everyday for a cure for CF.
Over the last three years, Team Amazing Gracie has raised over $40,000. I am so unbelievably grateful for the generosity and support of our friends and family and would love to continue the momentum this year.
While great progress has been made in recent years, there is still no cure for cystic fibrosis. The CFF truly relies on fundraising in order to fund research. Grace herself has benefitted from this research and the developments made by the foundation. Please consider donating and/or joining our team and coming out for the walk! All donations are 100% tax deductible.
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.
