If not, you should!  Over the past year, the Greater New York Chapter has worked hard to really establish its online social media presence.  We have a Facebook page and Twitter handle which update daily with a variety of information. Followers can expect to see event photos, research updates, current CFF happenings, fundraising tips, and more! 

Every Wednesday we recognize our dedicated corporate supporters through “Sponsor Spotlight” posts during the months leading up to our Great Strides walks.  

We are also beyond excited to share our history through #ThrowbackThursday posts, in which we share our unique insight into the early years of the Foundation with photos, articles, awards and more from the 1950’s and 1960’s.  Seeing how far we’ve come is truly amazing and we hope all of our followers enjoy these snippets of the past.

You can also learn interesting information on #FactFriday, which focuses on relaying breaking news from the Foundation to followers. 

Social media has proven to be an important tool in spreading awareness for cystic fibrosis to various communities not only in Greater New York, but across the world. Throughout the month of May, which is CF Awareness Month, please join us in moving our mission forward by “liking” and sharing our posts and tweets!
