Team Henry invites you to join us in this momentous year in raising money and awareness for Cystic Fibrosis.
This year Ellie turns 13 and will have her Bat Mitzvah. She has chosen to raise money for the CF foundation as part of her Mitzvah project. But...as most of you know, Ellie takes charge in raising money every year....so this year she wants to be bigger and better than ever and has set a team goal of raising $5000. Also this year Steve turns 45 which is a huge milestone in the CF community. Not only will he be celebrating his 45th birthday...but he is celebrating in some of the best health he has seen in a long time. To say it is a miracle is an understatement. But he would never be where he is without you donating money year and year. Each year we are getting closer to a cure; but we are not there year.
So in honor of Ellie's Bat Mitzvah and Steve's 45th birthday we hope you will consider donating greatly this year. We will not stop till a cure is found and your continued support year and year means a lot to us!
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.
