There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. Our son, Matthew, was diagnosed when he was 5 years old. We walk for Matthew and for everyone else who has this devastating disease. We hope you will support us in our efforts.
Real progress has been made in the search for a cure, but the lives of people with CF are cut far too short. There still is no cure for this disease. By walking today, we are helping add tomorrows to the lives of people living with cystic fibrosis. Please support the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation by making a donation to our Great Strides fundraising campaign today!
Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families. We are walking in Ocean City, NJ on April 27, 2019 and we hope you will join us for our 10th walk!
Please support me!
Help us reach our fundraising goal by donating to our Great Strides fundraising campaign. Your gift will help add tomorrows to the lives of people with cystic fibrosis by supporting life-saving research and medical progress. Your gift is 100-percent tax deductible.
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.
