About Our Great Strides Walk

 

We can’t wait to bring the CF community together for Sacramento 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.

Join us as we all come together in-person & virtually for our Candyland themed 2022 Great Strides. Whether you’re walking with us in person or from your neighborhood, this year is going to be extra sweet. The CHP Academy in West Sacramento is generously hosting our Great Strides walk this year, so make sure to give them a big thank you for supporting our mission.

For those attending in person, please note that you will need a parking pass to enter the event. Parking is free, but the pass is REQUIRED. Please print it in color here. The walk is located at the CHP Academy in West Sacramento- 3500 Reed Ave, West Sacramento, CA 95605. Check-in begins at 8:30 AM and the walk starts at 10 AM.

New this year:

* We will have team cones near our registration area where you can meet up with your teammates.
* Dogs are not allowed, so please leave your furry friends at home.
* In an effort to be environmentally conscious, we encourage you to bring your own water bottle. We will have extras at the walk in case you forget. 
* Due to COVID, we are pairing down our food selections and will not serve lunch; however, we will have plenty of yummy snacks and sweet treats! We encourage you to bring a blanket, pack a picnic for lunch, and hang out with us after the walk.
* We are going cashless, so please submit all donations online or on the Fight CF mobile app prior to the walk.
