About Our Great Strides Walk

Great Strides is now Great Rides

We can’t wait to bring the CF community together for Sacramento Great Strides on May 15, 2021!

This year we’re turning Great Strides into a car parade to celebrate your efforts towards finding a cure for CF. Because many of us could use a vacation after this past year, we invite you to “getaway” to our Great Strides island in Sacramento, CA!

In addition to our island getaway car parade, Sacramento Great Strides will have a virtual component and experience so that everyone in our community can participate and help make a difference for people living with cystic fibrosis.

Register today to join us for our Great Strides car parade or to walk virtually. We look forward to safely bringing our community together and making CF stand for Cure Found.

We hope you’ll join us at Sacramento Great Strides!
