The CF Great Stides Walk was held virtually this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We will again be holding our seventh annual golf outing “Mulligans for Morgan” on 8/7/2021 with all proceeds benefiting CF.
Morgan is currently 19 years old and has completed her first year at the University of Pittsburgh Greensburg. She took a summer job at a local ice cream place to make some extra money. Morgan has now been taking the new FDA approved drug, Trikafta for about a year and a half. It has been amazing! In this time period she has not had to use a single antibiotic where normally she would have to take one every two months.
“Team Miles for Morgan” feels that it is even more important this year to raise funds for CF due to the money lost from the Great Strides Walk and many other annual fundraisers being canceled this year. With your donations and sponsorships we were able to raise just over $10,000 last year. We have set our goal at $10,000 this year.
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.
