There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. Just 2 weeks after he was born, we learned Owen Dresden George was one of them. Thanks to treatments developed by the CF foundation and an early diagnosis at just 2 weeks of age, Owen has a head start on breath and life - but he and all the thousands of others with CF depend on the research funded by the CF foundation for a better quality of life. There are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. We walk for Owen, but we also walk for them. Will you join us? All we need you to do to become a member of our team is click on the "Join our Team" button. From there you can make a donation and/or start your own fundraising. Even a small donation of a few dollars helps. Can't afford to donate? No problem! We would love to have you join us at the walk anyway.
By becoming a member of our team 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.
