It’s that special time of year again when Ian’s Army prepares to lace up their sneakers and participate in the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Great Strides Walk. We are incredibly grateful for all the generosity you’ve shown in the past and ask that you consider supporting us again.
Every day counts for those battling cystic fibrosis, and every dollar works hard toward developing new therapies and pushing research toward finding a cure. In Ian’s short lifetime we have witnessed the approval of life changing, disease modifying medicines Kalydeco, Orkambi, Symdeco, and most recently, Trikafta, which all treat the underlying cause of CF. This would have never been possible without the backing of the CF Foundation and donors like yourself.
We are at a pivotal moment in the history of cystic fibrosis and your support matters. Please help Ian’s Army reach its fundraising goal, and please consider joining our team and walking with us in October.
We thank you very much,
Ian, Marin, Brian and Jen

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.
