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.
