Since Olivia's diagnosis the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has been a significant part of our family. Over the years since her diagnosis we've supported Great Strides and her daily battle with the disease. Olivia's personality, love for others and voice are just a few things we love dearly... her optimism, strengths and amazing talents are truly inspiring.
As a National Family Team, Fighting with Fives reached numerous goals and raised over $30,000+ for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation thanks to the support of our family and friends. We thank everyone for your encouragment, love and generosity. We're looking forward to successful 2021!
We invite you to join our virtual team and make a donation. We are accepting $5 donations. Please share this page with colleagues, friends, and family and See Your $5 Fight CF! There are two ways you can become a member of our National Family team:
1. You can join our virtual team as a walker and help fundraise by clicking the Join Our Team Button above.
2. You can lead your own team under our National Family team in a walk local to you and help recruit others to walk with you by clicking Find a Walk and following the prompts to register for a walk near you.
Donations will be made in memory and honor of our cousin, Shannon Callahan Cowden. Shannon was not only our big cousin, she was our role model, a dedicated daughter, wife, mother, and friend. Shannon's passion and committment to the CF Foundation will be remembered for years to come.
We move our feet to help Olivia beat, Cystic Fibrosis.

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.
FOR YOUR SAFETY AND THE SAFETY OF OTHERS:
For the health and wellbeing of the CF community, those eligible to be vaccinated are required to be fully vaccinated to join us in-person for the event. If you are not fully vaccinated, we invite you to participate virtually if that option exists.
We do not plan to ask for you to provide proof of vaccination. We are, however, counting on the fact that you appreciate the potential consequences of exposing members of the CF community to COVID and will abide by this requirement.
We cannot guarantee that all people in attendance at the event, including participants, sponsors, volunteers, and vendors, have been fully vaccinated.
