I would like to first say THANK YOU to everyone for all the donations over the many years of doing this walk. As most of you know, Crystal passed away the morning of June 4th, 2019 at the Cleveland Clinic. Crystal was only 32 years old. After a month and a half long battle with pneumonia and CF complications, she was able to fullfill her dream of organ donation. Both of her kidneys went on to save 2 people in the US.
Thank you all very much and stay healthy in 2023!!

Join our team and help us get one step closer to a cure for cystic fibrosis – a rare, genetic, life-shortening disease that makes it difficult to breathe.
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, friends, and co-workers who struggle every day in the face of this devasting disease.
We walk in Great Strides for them.
Will you join us?
Great Strides is a fun event that provides a fantastic opportunity for family, friends, students, and colleagues to come together to make a difference in the lives of people with CF.
