Norah is a happy, energetic fourth grader with Cystic Fibrosis (CF), a chronic genetic disease that primarily affects the lungs and digestive system.To stay healthy, Norah requires breathing treatments wearing a chest percussion vest and over twenty pills every day.
You can help support the search to find a cure for CF, help Norah, and make a positive difference for over 30,000 infants, children, and adults in the United States living with CF to have more healthy tomorrows.
Help us reach our goal. Make a donation to a Team Norah walker. Join Team Norah as a walker or a virtual walker (all walkers have the opportunity to fundraise and earn prizes).
90% of every dollar raised is used to support lifesaving research, care, and educational programs.Your contribution donation is tax deductible.

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.
