Maverick and Sadie both have Cystic Fibrosis! This ugly disease has done so much to my kids. We are in this fight to raise money for A Cure!
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. We walk for them. Will you join us? To become a member of our team, just click on the "Join our Team" button. From there you can make a donation and start your fundraising.

Maverick was diagnosed with CF June 17th 2009. I will remember this day forever. He has been in and out of the hospital and we need to help him. Sadie was born March 2017 and diagnosed April 10th. It was not easy to here the words from a doctor for either one. CF is a ugly disease. Sadie has been hospitalzed once and very sick her first year of life. Please join us in finding a Cure. It would mean so much to Maverick and Sadie to have your love and support.
Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.
Important note on Attendance at Foundation Events:
Infections can exacerbate CF symptoms and worsen lung function, so we ask attendees at Foundation-sponsored events to observe the following best practices to reduce the risk of germ transmission:
Regularly wash hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel.
Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your inner elbow.
Maintain a safe 6-foot distance from anyone with a cold or infection.
To further reduce the risk of cross-infection, the Foundation’s attendance policy recommends that all people with CF maintain a safe 6-foot distance from each other at all times while attending an outdoor Foundation-sponsored event. All Great Strides walks are non-smoking events.
