About Our Walk
Chicago Great Strides presented by J.E. Manzi and Associates, Inc. and DMC, is proud to be one of the largest cystic fibrosis walks in the country, raising over $600,000 through the help of over 1,500 walkers. Walk day is a fun, family-oriented event with a healthy 5k walk, children's activities, food, and festivities that the Chicago 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 lakefront walk and 5K run to help make CF stand for Cure Found! Click HERE for more information or to register for the 5k Superhero Fun Run . Please note – If you have formed a Great Strides team and wish to participate in the 5K a separate registration is required for that event.
