About Our Walk

May 17, 2015! Great Strides Milwaukee is proud to be the largest cystic fibrosis fundraiser in Wisconsin.  Walk day is a fun, family-oriented event with a healthy 5k walk, children's activities, and entertainment for all ages, food, and festivities that the Metro-Milwaukee community looks forward to year after year. 

To participate in Great Strides Milwaukee, please register online. There is no registration fee, but we ask that all participants contribute through fundraising or a personal donation. Walkers should check-in at the Miller Room at O’Donnell Park at 9:30 a.m. on May 17, 2015. The walk begins at 11:00 a.m. and is followed by lunch and an awards ceremony.

WE’VE GONE CASHLESS!!! For the security of your donation and the safety of our fundraisers, our volunteers, and our staff, all cash donations must be converted to cashier’s check or money order!

We’re still searching for a cure. The funds raised through Great Strides Milwaukee help our mission: to cure cystic fibrosis (CF), and to provide all people with the disease the opportunity to lead full, productive lives by funding research and drug development, promoting individualized treatment, and ensuring access to high-quality, specialized care. Events like Great Strides Milwaukee finance a unique approach to drug discovery, yielding a CF therapeutics pipeline with more than 12 potential therapies in development. Virtually every approved CF drug available today was made possible because of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s support.

We need help to reach achieve our mission. Join us and register (for free!) for Great Strides Milwaukee. Begin your fundraising efforts TODAY to help us make CF stand for Cure Found!
