Thank you for visiting Team Whitt's Page! We are extremely grateful that our family and friends want to help CURE Cystic Fibrosis. This will be our 19th Annual Walk and we are so very thankful for your steadfast support every year!
CF is a rare inherited life-shortening disease that causes persistent serious lung infections that over time limit the ability to breathe and also damages the digestive system. When Walter was born, the median predicted age of survival was in the 20’s. For a baby born today with CF, that number has risen into the 40’s. The incredible advances in research and medical treatments have happened thanks to the generosity of so many like you.
We would be very grateful if would consider making a 100% tax-deductible donation to our team for life-saving research to continue. Any amount you can give is greatly appreciated!
Also, we would love if you joined our team on Saturday, June 1st on the National Mall in Washington, DC!
Thank you so much for investing in a CURE for Cystic Fibrosis - we are deeply grateful for your support!
Important note on Attendance at Foundation Events:
Infections can exacerbate CF symptoms and worsen lung function, so we ask attendees at Foundation-sponsored events to observe the following best practices to reduce the risk of germ transmission:
Regularly wash hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel.
Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your inner elbow.
Maintain a safe 6-foot distance from anyone with a cold or infection.
To further reduce the risk of cross-infection, the Foundation’s attendance policy recommends that all people with CF maintain a safe 6-foot distance from each other at all times while attending an outdoor Foundation-sponsored event. All Great Strides walks are non-smoking events.
