Join our team and help us get one step closer to a cure for cystic fibrosis!
65 miles in August for Briley's Birthday!
Briley turns 7 on 8/1 and for her birthday this year - since the Great Strides walk has gone virtual - I've set a goal to do 65 miles in her honor during the month of August and to raise a little money for research along the way.
Perhaps you and yours would like to join me. A few long hikes on the weekends or 2.1 miles per day every day of the month or a combination of the two. Get outside, enjoy the summer weather, stay distanced, and make a difference in the lives of those with CF!
For too long, cystic fibrosis, a rare, genetic disease, has robbed people of tomorrows – progressively limiting their ability to breathe and tragically shortening life. Real progress has been made for those who have CF, but there is still no cure for this devastating disease and many lives are cut far too short. Right now there are approximately 30,000 Americans living with CF. Including sweet Briley.
I know know that especially now, many really important things are taking our time, our attention, and our resources. Thank you for considering making a donation or joining in our fundraising efforts! It really means a lot.
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.
