Team "March for Mila - Portland" is the 'northern' group of family and friends that is raising money and awareness to fight cystic fibrosis (CF) on behalf of Mila. Mila was born in San Diego in June of 2021 and has CF. Helping ensure that Mila and the thousands of others who have CF are able to lead a healthy life is why we walk. And why we hope you will consider supporting us by joining our team and/or donating to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation!
With supporters like you by our side, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation continues to lead the way in the fight against CF, fueling extraordinary medical and scientific progress. The life expectancy of someone born with CF has doubled in the last 30 years. Despite this progress, many people with CF do not benefit from existing therapies either because their disease is too advanced or because their specific genetic mutations will not respond. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, grandchildren, friends, and co-workers who struggle every day in the face of this devasting disease.
Will you join us?
Great Strides is a fun event that provides a fantastic opportunity for family and friends to come together to make a difference in the lives of people with CF. Team "March for Mila - Portland" will be walking here in Portland on May 20th. Our 'southern group', Team "March for Mila" will be walking in San Diego on June 3rd. Together, we look to make a great impact in 2023!
