About Our Walk
Welcome to Great Strides 2015! After the success of previous years, we're
excited to bring the walk to Warner Park and the Mallards Baseball Stadium, the
'Duck Pond'. Walk day promises to be a fun, family-oriented event with a healthy
5k walk, a chance to run the bases, tour the club house, lunch and much more. We
look forward to seeing everyone on the field, our Great Strides Spring Training
We're still 'hitting' for a cure, so here's our game plan.
The funds raised through Great Strides Madison help our mission: to cure cystic
fibrosis, and to provide all the 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 Madison finance a unique approach to drug discovery,
yielding a CF therapeutics pipeline with more than 12 potential therapies in
development. Everyone involved should be proud that virtually every drug to
treat CF, available now and the years to come, was made possible because of the
'run'-support of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
We need your help to
achieve our shared hopes and dreams. Join us and 'signup' to be part of the
Great Strides Madison team! Draft your fantasy roster, manage your team, hit a
fundraising grand slam and help us make CF stand for Cure Found!
