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? All we need you to do to become a member of our team is click on the "Join our Team" button. Online registration helps us plan our event better as well. From there you can make a donation or ask others to sponsor you (no amount is to small) and start your fundraising. You could ask 5 people to sponsor you at $5 and you have raised $25!
By becoming a member of our team and making a donation, you are joining a growing group of people committed to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis. Together, we are adding tomorrows to the lives of people living with CF by supporting the search for a cure.
Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families. Walk today to help add tomorrows with more than 1,000 others who are taking strides towards extending the lives of those suffering from cystic fibrosis at the April 28th Great Strides event. Check-in/Registration at 8am, walk begins at 9am.
Enjoy a 5k walk around the beautiful Tempe Center for the Arts in Tempe, AZ. with scenic views of the Papago Mountains and Tempe Town Lake. The event also features a fun, family-oriented celebration that includes music by DJ Private, dancing, food and beverages, kids activities, massages and more. There is no registration fee and there is no minimum fundraising amount although we do encourage help with fundraising to support research. We do appreciate you helping us spread awareness and coming to show your support as well. Those who raise $100 will get an event t-shirt and there will be Team Shirts available for purchase.

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.
