About Our Walk

North Shore Great Strides is proud to be a part of one of the largest cystic fibrosis walk programs in the country, raising almost $250,000 through the help of over 300 walkers. Walk day is a fun, family-oriented event with a healthy 5k walk, children's activities, food, and festivities that the Greater Illinois community looks forward to year after year. 

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 hope you will join us for our annual Great Strides walk to help make CF stand for Cure Found! 

Great Strides t-shirts will be awarded to any participant that raises $100 or more by walk day. 
(Donations must be posted to individual’s Great Strides account.)


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.
