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.
Kaleb is 20 years old and fighting CF! Please help us find a cure in his lifetime!
Kaleb is in college and has started Trikafta but still has a low lung function. We need a cure!
Kaleb has been fighting this disease his whole life and was born with CF. We didn't find out he has the disease until he was 3 months old. Kaleb has had over 25 surgeries and been hospitalized on average 2-3 times a year for 1-2 weeks. He has multi resistant bacteria that require IV antibiotics. He has a g-tube to help him gain weight and a port a cath to access easily for blood draws and meds. He sees his CF team at CHOC 1-2 times a month when healthy and every week when sick.
Although advances have been made and he is able to take the corrector Trikafta, we still need a cure. These funds go to just that. Help us make CF stand for Cure Found.
For too long, cystic fibrosis, a rare, genetic disease, has robbed people of tomorrows – progressively limiting their ability to breathe and tragically shortening life. There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with CF. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers who struggle every day in the face of this devasting disease.
I walk for them. Will you join me and support my Great Strides fundraising goal?

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, indoor events sponsored by the CF Foundation are strictly prohibited at this time. Scheduled outdoor events must adhere to strict requirements to minimize the risk of COVID-19 infection. Events may be subject to change at any time based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local health officials.
IMPORTANT NOTE ON ATTENDANCE AT OUTDOOR FOUNDATION EVENTS:
To minimize the risk of COVID-19 infection, attendees at CF Foundation events must adhere to the following requirements:
Practice physical distancing and maintain at least a safe 6-foot distance from persons outside of their household at all times
Face masks strongly encouraged and expected to be worn in accordance with local guidelines. (Note, children under two years of age should not wear masks due to safety concerns and therefore should not attend CF Foundation events where there is risk of interacting with someone outside of their household.)
Follow basic infection, prevention and control practices by regularly washing hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel, covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your inner elbow.
Persons with CF should consult their physician before participation in any in-person event as they may be at an increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19. People with CF should maintain a safe 6-foot distance from persons outside of their household at all times.
