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. From there you can make a donation and start your fundraising.
This year our family and friends will be walking May 18st in North Andover for the cystic fibrosis foundation. Veronica is 19 years old and a sophomore at UMass Amherst. She has had a very tough year with her CF. But we are very lucky to have wonderful doctors, nurses, friends and family to help.
Real progress has been made in the search for a cure, but the lives of people with CF are still cut far too short. There still is no cure for this devastating disease. New drugs are in trials that could make a big difference in CF. But we need to support the research.
Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families. Bring your kids and dogs for a fun morning.
If you can't join us please consider supporting team victory with a donation.

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.
