For the past couple years Team Chehayla has taken a break from Great Strides, but we are ready to get back at it. In an effort to reguvinate Chehayla's team we are walking in Portland this year. We hope you'll join us!
Part of the reason for our break is that Cheyala has been on a new medication and has seen great health benifits from it. It was nice just to put CF on the back burner for a while...but just cause we set it aside doesnt mean it's gone. Chehayla's sister has been advocating for CF localy and in Washington DC. Watching Talon fight for the CF Comminuty has inspired me to "get back in the game". In one form or another our family will always be fighting to cure CF....until it's done!
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 fundraising.

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.
