4-Miler News: Entries Up by Double!

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Four Miler entries have increased by almost double in 2013.  With 350 individuals representing 14 rowing programs from around the northwest, and favorable weather , the event produced four miles of enthusiasm all around. We are likewise so thankful to be able to increase the revenues for the Foundation, which is already finding cures. Thanks so much to all who are participating.  Special thanks to Lake Washington Rowing Club for sponsoring the 2nd Annual Oktoberfest that also raised generous donations and revenues to fight cystic fibrosis.

Policy on Exclusion of Individuals Who Have Burkholderia cepacia

Because of health risks to people with cystic fibrosis (CF), individuals with CF who have had a confirmed positive sputum culture for Burkholderia cepacia (B. cepacia) complex shall not attend Cystic Fibrosis Foundation events, meetings or offices. This policy is necessary because B. cepacia is contagious to individuals with CF. B. cepacia can be transmitted through casual contact or close proximity with infected individuals. B. cepacia infection in a person with CF can cause serious respiratory illness and, in some patients, may result in rapid decline in lung function, possibly leading to death. While this policy should reduce the risk of B. cepacia cross infection, there still might still be some individuals with B. cepacia in attendance. B. cepacia is not a known health risk to individuals without CF who are otherwise healthy. The CF Foundation supports research to identify new treatments for B. cepacia. For alternative ways to participate and for more information regarding this policy, please contact the CF Foundation at (800) FIGHT-CF or visit www.cff.org. Consult your CF care center physician with medical questions.
