Sacramento 2018


About Our Walk

This year, for the first time ever, we will be holding Sacramento Great Strides at The Barn on West Sacramento’s riverfront! The Barn is the Bridge District’s new destination culinary and events venue in West Sacramento. The Barn is an iconic structure and site arrangement that aspires to connect visitors to the narrative of the region’s agricultural heritage with a design that is specific to west Sacramento’s place and history on the banks of the Sacramento river. Check out the new venue at http://barn.thebridgedistrict.com/ 

For 30 years, Great Strides – the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s largest national fundraising event – has supported the Foundation’s mission to cure cystic fibrosis and raise awareness for this rare, genetic, life-shortening disease that makes it difficult to breathe and shortens lives. 

Great Strides provides a fantastic opportunity for family, friends, students, and colleagues to come together and make a difference in the lives of people with CF. The event harnesses the power of people with a shared vision and encourages collaboration, team building, and leadership, as we collectively take steps to find a cure. 

Registration is free, but walkers are encouraged to raise funds. Your support will help accelerate innovative research and drug development, as well as advance care and advocacy. Nearly every CF drug was made possible by the Foundation and because of funds raised from Great Strides, people with CF are living longer, healthier lives and pursuing their dreams. 

We are working every day to build on this incredible momentum, and we won’t stop until there is a cure for all people living with CF. Grab your family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors and sign up today to walk in Great Strides on June 2, 2018 and join us as we take steps towards a cure! 

The time is now. Together, we can cross the finish line.
