Henry is just like any other rambunctious four year old boy. He runs and plays hard. He plays t-ball and loves being outside. He loves hanging out with his older sisters and is such a mama’s boy. You wouldn’t know by looking at him, but Henry was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at three weeks old. He has endured a lot in his short life. Tests, lots of medicine, and some traumatic hospital stays. At just four, his body is already showing signs of the disease progressing. He does it all with a never ending smile.
We stride for Henry and all those affected by this awful disease. We stride because we are hopeful that a cure will come in Henry’s lifetime and he will one day know a life without cystic fibrosis.
About Our Walk
For more than 30 years, Great Strides – the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s largest national fundraising event – has supported the Foundation’s mission to cure cystic fibrosis and raise awareness for this rare, genetic, life-shortening disease that makes it difficult to breathe and shortens lives.
Great Strides provides a fantastic opportunity for family, friends, students, and colleagues to come together and make a difference in the lives of people with CF. The event harnesses the power of people with a shared vision and encourages collaboration, team building, and leadership, as we collectively take steps to find a cure
Registration is free, but walkers are encouraged to raise funds. Your support will help accelerate innovative research and drug development, as well as advance care and advocacy. Nearly every CF drug was made possible by the Foundation and because of funds raised from Great Strides, people with CF are living longer, healthier lives and pursuing their dreams.
We are working every day to build on this incredible momentum, and we won’t stop until there is a cure for all people living with CF.
Sign up to walk in Great Strides today and join us as we take steps towards a cure.
The time is now. Together, we can cross the finish line.
CFF is going cashless! If making a donation the day of the walk we encourage you to bring your checkbooks or credit cards and avoid cash.
