Our family is walking on May 19 for a very dear friend who is 6 years old and lives with cystic fibrosis, a genetic disorder that affects the function of the lungs and other organs. This is a pivotal moment in the history of cystic fibrosis: real progress has been made, but many lives are still cut far too short. Your donation will support groundbreaking medical research and progress towards a cure. Please make a donation today!
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.
