Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation made the difficult decision to not hold any in-person events between March 16 and May 10. This means that we won't be able to walk together on May 2nd at the Hagerstown Fairground Park, However, we can still support Cystic Fibrosis and the CF Community by fundraising and participating virtually on May 2nd by going for a walk in your neighborhood, bike riding, take a jog or maybe get your dance on with your family at home.
Even though we may not physically be together on event day, the goal remains unchaned; to find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. Cystic Fibrosis does not receive any federal funding and is supported by individual and corporations across the country and it's because of your generosity that has gotten the Cystic Fibrosis Foundations as far as it is today. To learn more about the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, it's missing and accomplishments, you can go to https://www.cff.org/

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.
