About Our Great Strides Walk
We can’t wait to bring the CF community together for Great Strides! Our 2022 Great Strides event will feature in-person and virtual experiences to help make a difference for people living with cystic fibrosis.
Register. Register to participate in-person or virtually in this year’s Great Strides event and help us stay the course and advance our mission. Stay up to date on how our chapter plans to safely bring the community together and make CF stand for Cure Found by registering today.
Recruit. Recruit others to participate with you! Friends, family, and co-workers can join you virtually from anywhere in the world.
Fundraise. Fundraise online by leveraging the tools in the Participant Center, the Fight CF mobile app, and Fundraise on Facebook to reach your goal. Create a virtual passion fundraising event by developing a fundraising event through your favorite hobby, activity, or passion.
Share your Journey. Wear a Great Strides shirt, team shirt, or your Cystic Fibrosis Foundation branded apparel, while you walk with us or in your neighborhood! Track your activity on the mobile app so you and your team can walk together and with others across the country. Share how you are striding by sharing your story and posting a selfie on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Make sure to tag the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (@CF_Foundation) and use the hashtag #GreatStrides to keep the energy and momentum going strong!
Celebrate. Join us at the walk to celebrate with your team or join us online for a virtual celebration. Contact your local Chapter to learn more.
Thank you Sponsors.
We want to thank our generous national sponsors - gold national sponsor, AbbVie, our silver national sponsors, Nestle Health Sciences, Vertex, Gilead, and Genentech, and our bronze sponsor, Viatris. Thank you, American Airlines, our Outstanding Corporate Supporter.
We also want to thank our local sponsors who continue to help advance our mission.
A NOTE REGARDING ADMISSION INTO THE ZOO: We ask that each participant collect at least $50 in donations for free admission to the zoo but please note that team totals and fundraising are accounted for; tickets are available at a discounted rate for those who do not reach this minimum. If you are a current Cleveland Zoological Society Member we encourage you to use your membership pass for your admission on the day of the walk as this helps the Foundation reduce admission costs. Children under 2 will have free admission into the zoo.
In lieu of cash, we ask that you make all payments/contributions to the CF Foundation with a credit card or check. We accept all major credit cards. Thank you for your understanding.
Events may be subject to change at any time, based on health concerns, including concerns based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local health officials. In these instances when events are moved to a virtual format, sponsorship benefits may be adjusted to suit the virtual format.
