Join our team and help us get one step closer to a cure for cystic fibrosis – a rare, genetic, life-shortening disease that makes it difficult to breathe.
With supporters like you by our side, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation continues to lead the way in the fight against CF, fueling extraordinary medical and scientific progress. The life expectancy of someone born with CF has doubled in the last 30 years. Despite this progress, many people with CF, including myself, do not benefit from existing therapies either because their disease is too advanced or because their specific genetic mutations will not respond. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers who struggle every day in the face of this devasting disease.
Will you join us?
Great Strides is a fun event that provides an opportunity for family, friends, students, and colleagues to come together to make a difference in the lives of people with CF.
My name is Lindsey and I have been leading this team of amazing family & friends for over 10 years! I continue to participate in this event for all those who battle this disease but also for myself. I was diagnosed with CF when I was 2 months old. This team, event and organization are all so special to me and have, quite literally, been life saving. Join us free of charge & donate if you feel led - your presence is priceless and what’s most valued to me.
To participate, just click on the "Join our Team" button. From there, you can make a donation of your choice and start fundraising.
By joining our Great Strides team and making a donation, you will be part of a tenacious and passionate group of people committed to ending this disease. Together, let’s make CF stand for Cure Found!
