Every year we participate in the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Great Strides Walk to raise awareness about Sloane’s disease and to raise funds for life-changing research and development of new medications. These new therapies will help Sloane and thousands of others live a longer, healthier life.
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. By making a donation, you are joining a growing group of people committed to finding a cure!
Join TEAM SLOANE RANGERS and help add tomorrows by donating any amount you can!
All donations to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation are 100% tax-deductible!
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.
