A Sparkling Showcase Event!
Crowning of the
2010 “Miss Shimmy”
1:30 PM until
the last shimmier drops!
This unique event pairs the art & joy of bellydance with fundraising to help find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis (CF). CF is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the U.S. (70,000 worldwide)
Shimmy-a-thon encourages dancers to spread awareness about CF to friends, family, coworkers and their community and seek sponsors to support their efforts. We have some great prizes to award, so start soliciting sponsors early!
All proceeds from the event will be donated to the
Cystic Fibrosis Foundation as part of their
GREAT STRIDES Campaign.
Medical Note: Because of risks to people with cystic fibrosis (CF), individuals with a confirmed positive sputum culture for Burkholderia cepacia complex shall not attend this event. This is because B. cepacia can be passed between individuals who have CF through close proximity. B. cepacia infection in a person with CF can cause serious respiratory illness and, in some patients, may lead to death. Despite this policy, there might still be some individuals with B. cepacia in attendance. B. cepacia is not a risk for otherwise healthy individuals. For alternative ways to participate and for information about this policy, please contact the CF Foundation at (800) FIGHT-CF or visit our web site at www.cff.org. Consult your CF care center physician with medical questions.
