This year we will be walking with Gracie's Group for our 16th Annual Cystic Fibrosis walk on Sunday May 17th! I am hoping you will be able to join us! We will have walk shirts for anyone that needs a new size or is walking for the first time with us. Please let me know the size you will need ahead of time (if you need a new one) so I can make sure that we have enough for everyone. Last year with everyone's great efforts we were able to raise $5,883.78 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. This year I am setting our goal at $6,000.00. If we can achieve this it will bring team total for all the years we have walked to over $100,000.00! I will be keeping track of donations and our totals and will be sending out a special prize to the person who brings us over the $100,000 mark. Please help us achieve this goal for a great cause! We will hopefully also have our pop-up tent at the walk so we can all try to sit together. Thanks for your continued support of Grace and the other like her that live every day with CF.
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.
