Hi! My name is Nahomy Morales and I am 25 years old with Cystic Fibrosis. This is honestly the third year I am doing the CF Walkathon with the CF Foundation and I am truly excited! Come join my family and I . If you can't, that's totally fine. You can still help by making a donation! Every penny counts! In 2019 I had set the goal to raise $1,ooo.oo since it was only my first time ever registering for this as well as my first time ever forming a team. I was overwhelmed with joy that not only did I reach my goal but even surpassed it by raising a total of $1,155.00. This year I want to set a higher goal and do $2,000.00 as well as get more people to join my team.
Due to COVID , there has been a lot of changes everywhere around us , especially in our CF lives . We are at much higher risk then ever but we don't want to let that stop us from still doing our part in the CF community. Our walkathon is virtual this year but we are still going to do our best to make it the best experience ever from home . I have high goals for this year . In 2019 , i was thankful to have had the support of many and fundraiser $1,000.00 . Well this year , i want to beat that and see if we can hit $2,000.00 . Can you guys help ? Please don't feel obligated since I do know that it has been rough during this pandemic but just know every dollar counts ! The walkathon will be in Walnut Creek on May 15th . You are more than welcomed to sign up and join my team ! Just click the link below . You can either sign up and create your own goal to fundraise or simply donate without joining . Again , every dollar counts ! Please and thank you in advance

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.
