Please join our team and help add tomorrows to Faith's life and others living with CF! We are walking with Great Strides on Saturday, June 1st, 9:00AM in Washington, D.C. at the National Mall. This event is one of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's most successful fundraisers each year.
Around 30,000 Americans live with Cystic Fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers who eventually struggle to breathe. We walk for these treasures. In so doing, we raise money to fund necessary research for treatments and a cure. New treatments and medications evolve from the research pipeline, significantly funded by money raised through Great Strides.

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.
