Team Alexis' Angels was created in 1994 and led by Alexis' mother, Nesha. At that time, the team participated in the Frederick, MD Great Strides where Nesha and her daughter resided. Alexis' Angels helped to raise thousands of dollars for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation throughout the years with the help of friends, family, and business owners in the area.
After a move to Wilmington, NC and a few years in between, Alexis decided to relaunch Alexis' Angels and become Team Leader. She has led her team in Wilmington and Washington DC, continuing to raise funds for the foundation that has made such a tremendous impact in her life.
Join Alexis' Angels to help Alexis and all her cysters and fibros live to see CF stand for a CURE FOUND!
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.
