Together, we have raised

Help us get to our goal of for Great Strides, CF Cycle for Life, CF Climb, Xtreme Hike, and Team CF.

Great Strides provides a fantastic opportunity for family, friends, students, and colleagues to come together and make a difference. The event harnesses the power of people with a shared vision and encourages collaboration, team building, and leadership, as we take steps to find a cure for cystic fibrosis.

Your participation in Great Strides matters a lot! We don’t just want to treat CF, we want to end CF.

The time is now. Together, we can cross the finish line.

Why We Stride

Get to know one of our CF Fighters! Our CF Fighters are the face of Great Strides, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s largest national fundraiser. These fighters, who have cystic fibrosis, are committed to helping raise awareness and fund research by fundraising for Great Strides so that someday, we can cure CF.

2023 National Ambassadors

Lauren Luteran National Ambassador for CFF

Cru Aguinaga
Texas

Cru Aguinaga was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at 5 weeks old. He loves animals, playing with his siblings, Adair and Witten Rose, and eating — namely noodles, brownies, and strawberries. Cru’s support system consists of his brother and sister, his dog, Nala, his mom and dad, and all his friends and family. As a 2023 national ambassador for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, he looks forward to showing what CF means to him and his family.

Saiul Merrero National Ambassador for CF

Elle Kellner
Florida

Elizabeth (Elle) Kellner was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at 4.5 months old and is a double-lung and kidney transplant recipient. As a child, she remembers being told she couldn’t do some of the things her peers did because she wasn’t “strong enough” or she was too sick. However, she is not one to give up easily and never accepts no as an answer. In her free time, she loves yoga, cooking, dancing, and going to the beach. In 2007, following a toy drive she ran alongside her husband, she started a non-profit that benefits pediatric patients at her local hospital.
