About Our Walk
West Suburban Great Strides is proud to be a part of one of the largest cystic fibrosis walk programs in the country, raising almost $250,000 through the help of over 400 walkers. 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 to help make CF stand for Cure Found!
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.)
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.
