South Austin 2018


About Our Walk

Join us on May 5th for Great Strides South Austin at the Austin Zoo!

Help us celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Great Strides as come together to raise funds and awareness for cystic fibrosis. 

Event Schedule:

9am: Registration begins

10am: Presentation & Walk

11am: Lunch, Games & Activities

Walk day is a fun, family-friendly event with a short walk, kids activities, food, and of course – Zoo animals!  Registered teams & their guests will receive entrance to the Austin Zoo for the day. 

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 encourage you to sign up as a team leader or walker today!  If you have any interest in sponsoring the walk or starting a corporate team please email awalter@cff.org.

Want to be an event-day helper?  We are always looking for volunteer to help with set-up, registration, games and much more.  Contact awalter@cff.org for more info. 


CFF is going cashless!  If making a donation the day of the walk we encourage you to bring your checkbooks or credit cards and avoid cash.
