Meet our special guy Caden! Caden was born with Cystic Fibrosis. This rare genetic disorder affects little Caden's lungs and pancreas. As Caden will fight this for the rest of his life, we hope to engage our community and grow awareness. In his First year of life, he's already fighting hard! It’s been a year of both highs and lows. Here's Caden's CF reality: He needs between 7-8 breathing treatments a day. He wears his inflatable vest hooked up to a machine 3 times a day. In spite of all of that, Caden is a happy, well-adjusted little warrior! Caden’s Parents, Jeff and Gina, and big brother, Cameron, would love to have you join us to Fight for a Cure!
Join our team and help add tomorrows to Caden's life, along with the lives of all Cystic Fibrosis Warriors!
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. We walk for them. Will you join us? To become a member of our team, just click on the "Join our Team" button. From there you can make a donation and start your fundraising.
By becoming a member and making a donation, you are joining a growing group of people committed to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis. Together, we are adding tomorrows to the lives of people living with CF by supporting the search for a cure.
Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.
Important note on Attendance at Foundation Events:
Infections can exacerbate CF symptoms and worsen lung function, so we ask attendees at Foundation-sponsored events to observe the following best practices to reduce the risk of germ transmission:
Regularly wash hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel.
Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your inner elbow.
Maintain a safe 6-foot distance from anyone with a cold or infection.
To further reduce the risk of cross-infection, the Foundation’s attendance policy recommends that all people with CF maintain a safe 6-foot distance from each other at all times while attending an outdoor Foundation-sponsored event. All Great Strides walks are non-smoking events.
