Thank you for visiting our Great Strides team page. Each year, we walk for our grandson (Elisa’s son), George, better known as Super George, to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. George has cystic fibrosis – a life-threatening genetic disease that damages the lungs, respiratory system and digestive system. There have been many major medical advancements and life expectancy has increased, but there is still no cure…YET.
While it’s unfortunate, George is lucky to have such a loving family, and more importantly, FRIENDS LIKE YOU that support Team Super George. By joining our team and donating today, you are helping fund lifesaving research and medical progress.
Due to COVID-19, this year's walk is going virtual. We will have a virtual walk celebration on Saturday, October 3rd bringing together our CF community throughout South Florida. Even though the finish line looks a little different this year, we look forward to celebrating just how far we've come with all of our teams and families!
Together, we can make CF stand for Cure Found. Thank you for your support!
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, indoor events sponsored by the CF Foundation are strictly prohibited at this time. Scheduled outdoor events must adhere to strict requirements to minimize the risk of COVID-19 infection. Events may be subject to change at any time based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local health officials.
IMPORTANT NOTE ON ATTENDANCE AT OUTDOOR FOUNDATION EVENTS:
To minimize the risk of COVID-19 infection, attendees at CF Foundation events must adhere to the following requirements:
Practice physical distancing and maintain at least a safe 6-foot distance from persons outside of their household at all times
Face masks strongly encouraged and expected to be worn in accordance with local guidelines. (Note, children under two years of age should not wear masks due to safety concerns and therefore should not attend CF Foundation events where there is risk of interacting with someone outside of their household.)
Follow basic infection, prevention and control practices by regularly washing hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel, covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your inner elbow.
Persons with CF should consult their physician before participation in any in-person event as they may be at an increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19. People with CF should maintain a safe 6-foot distance from persons outside of their household at all times.
