Thank you for your continued commitment in our fight for a cure. We have been closely monitoring the public health updates and spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) throughout the United States and around the world. Out of an abundance of caution, we are now taking the extra measure of postponing or canceling all in-person CF Foundation events scheduled to occur between March 16 and April 12. With that said, the Metro D.C. Chapter has decided to postpone the 2020 Brewer’s Ball.  

We recognize that this is disappointing after months of planning and anticipation, but nothing is more important than protecting the health of people with CF and the community that so generously supports our cause.

Please keep an eye out for more information to come on a new date for our 15th Anniversary celebration. If you have purchased a ticket to the event you will be able to use it at the rescheduled date, can donate it to the CF Foundation as a 100% tax-deductible donation or can request a refund by emailing us at metrodc@cff.org.

Thank you again for your patience and understanding during this difficult time. We want to ensure that we are keeping sight of what truly matters- a cure for all people with CF!

 

Important Note on Attendance at Foundation 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 an indoor Foundation-sponsored event at a specific time
