I am excited to share that this year Colleen's Crew will be participating in the Baltimore Great Strides walk at Ravens Stadium on Thursday, May 14th, along with our usual Frederick walk and again in Greensboro, NC as well. As I completed my time at Elon University last spring, I reflected on my experiences there and feel especially grateful for the people that supported me and this cause. Having the chance to share with my newfound support system a cause very near and dear to my heart was so special. To my friends and teammates at Elon who decided amongst themselves to continue the local Great Strides walk, thank you and know how grateful I am for you!
This fall I started graduate school at the University of Maryland School of Social Work in Baltimore, so I am looking forward to joining another new walk with my friends and family in this area. If you would like to join us and help get us one step closer to a cure for CF, register here!

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.
