Welcome to our 15th year raising funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation as TEAM MISSY! Your unbelievably generous support, whether you're with us at Bde Maka Ska (Lake Calhoun) in Minneapolis, MN or there in spirit, has been amazing!! And this year, in 2020, in order to keep everyone healthy and safe, they have moved this year's walk from Saturday, May 2nd to Saturday, October 17, 2020!
Last year, with your help, we raised over $38,000 in a single year. Thank you SO incredibly much! This year, seeing as I will be turning 40 years old this year (!) my original goal was to raise $40,000! But as of June 13, with your help, we CRUSHED that goal! We have now set our sights even higher! Already this upwards trend is putting us on target to surpass the $400,000 mark for TEAM MISSY fundraising over the past 15 years! I couldn't be more excited and proud!
Please help me this year to raise not only money, but awareness for this disease. 90% of each dollar donated goes towards funding research to find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. This money buys TIME for each of us living with the disease. Time to laugh more, love more and live more and we could not do this without your funding and support! We will not stop until CF stands for CURE FOUND! So help us by asking your friends, neighbors, co-workers, relatives to contribute to this great cause. Even $1 will help! Our goal is to raise as much as possible in 2020 which will hopefully get us that much closer to eventually eliminating CF all together!

Cystic fibrosis is a devastating genetic disease that affects 30,000 children as well as adults in the United States. Research and care supported by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation are making a huge difference in the lives of those with CF.
Thank you for supporting Great Strides! We would really love to see you in person again this year for the TEAM MISSY Walk @ Bde Maka Ska (Lake Calhoun) in Minneapolis on October 17!
Much love. Big smiles. Just breathe. :)

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.
