There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic
fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and
co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. We walk for them. Will you
join us? To become a member of our team, just click on the "Join our
Team" button. From there, you can make a donation and start fundraising.
By joining our team and making a donation, you are joining a
growing group of people committed to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis. We
will not rest until all those with cystic fibrosis have a cure. The time is
now. Together, we can conquer this disease.
Great Strides is a fun event that provides a
fantastic opportunity for family, friends, students, and colleagues to come
together to make a difference in the lives of people with CF -- join our team
Important note on Attendance at Foundation Events:
Infections can exacerbate CF symptoms and worsen lung function, so we ask attendees at Foundation-sponsored events to observe the following best practices to reduce the risk of germ transmission:
Regularly wash hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel.
Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your inner elbow.
Maintain a safe 6-foot distance from anyone with a cold or infection.
To further reduce the risk of cross-infection, the Foundation’s attendance policy recommends that all people with CF maintain a safe 6-foot distance from each other at all times while attending an outdoor Foundation-sponsored event. All Great Strides walks are non-smoking events.
