On Saturday, May 30, 2020, TEAM EVAN is walking in the Washington DC Great Strides Walk in Washington, DC.
We walk for Evan. Mommy, Daddy, Addis, and Damian are head over heels for our warrior! Evan is in first grade this year...he loves recess, his teacher, and playing with all his friends! Evan loves going outside and playing with his toys! Evan loves science and doing his "experiments." Evan loves watching "The Mandalorian" and playing Xbox with his brothers! He is strong-willed, affectionate, smart, and very, very funny. We love to watch him grow...and listen to him do his many voices, sing his silly songs, and laugh his evil genius laugh!
Evan is our miracle. Prematurity, surgery, tummy aches, treatments, and loads of meds cannot stop him! He fights against CF everyday with his wide smile, big belly laugh, and strong, strong, will. We join him in his fight and are positive that CF will soon mean Cure Found.
We are at a pivotal moment in the history of cystic fibrosis and your support matters. Your gift will help add tomorrows to the lives of people with cystic fibrosis by supporting groundbreaking research and medical progress towards a cure. Please help us reach our fundraising goal!
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.
