About Our Great Strides Walk

We can’t wait to bring the CF community together for 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. As we’ve been preparing for the return of in-person Great Strides walks, we’ve looked at opportunities we have to collaborate as effectively as possible and to embrace the strength of our CF community when we work together. We’ve made a big decision to ensure we are best equipped to serve the CF community and provide a meaningful and fun Great Strides experience.

This year, we will be combining the Huntington Beach and Dana Point walks to create one large south OC community! We hope you'll join us on May 14th in Huntington Beach.

Huntington Beach State Park Location Details:

The event will be set up in the parking lot at the intersection of PCH and Huntington Street. The walk route will follow the bike path and loop just before the dog beach, at Goldenwest St. Detailed event information will be shared via email with all registered participants closer to the walk date. Please contact Katie Haynes, Event Director, at Khaynes@cff.org.
