Thank you for joining and/or donating to TEAM BRANCH! By donating you can help add tomorrows for those with Cystic Fibrosis.
Cystic Fibrosis is an inherited life-threatening disorder that damages the lungs and digestive system. Cystic fibrosis affects the cells that produce mucus, sweat, and digestive juices. It causes these fluids to become thick and sticky. They then plug up tubes, ducts, and passageways.
Two very dear people in the Branch family were born with the disease - our grandson, Giovanni and our granddaughter, Briaja. TEAM BRANCH fundraises for them!

By becoming a member of TEAM BRANCH, and making a donation, you are joining a growing group of people committed to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis. Together, we are adding tomorrows to the lives of Giovanni & Briaja and all those living with CF.
With Covid-19 still an issue this year, TEAM BRANCH and many teams around the USA are finding creative ways to continue awareness for Cystic Fibrosis. Great Strides Rapid City, SD will not host any in person events this year, but Great Strides in Sioux Falls, SD will host a "Car Parade for a Cure" on Saturday, June 5, 2021.

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.
