About Our Walk
Chicago Great Strides is proud to be a part of one of the largest cystic fibrosis walk programs in the country, raising over $600,000 through the help of over 1,500 walkers. This year we celebrate the 30th anniversary of Great Strides and the many milestones we have achieved thanks to our supporters. Walk day is a fun, family-oriented event with a healthy 5k walk, children's activities, food, and festivities that the Greater Illinois community looks forward to year after year.
We’re still searching for a cure, and the funds raised through the Great Strides walk help us finance a unique approach to drug discovery, yielding a therapeutics pipeline with more than 30 potential therapies in development. Virtually every approved CF drug available today was made possible because of the foundation’s support.
We hope you will join us for our annual Great Strides walk and 5k fun run to help make CF stand for Cure Found! The fun run will kick off at 10:50 am right before the walk. Register today!
Great Strides t-shirts will be awarded to any
participant that raises $100 or more by walk day.
(Donations must be posted to individual’s Great Strides account.)
