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 goal is to raise $40,000! If we reach this goal, we will be 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 $40,000 in 2020 which will 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. :)

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.
