Great Strides is a large fundraising event for cystic fibrosis held in cities across the US to traditionally encourage supporters to get together and stride for a cure for CF. This year the event is being held virtually, or in smaller groups if you choose. This is our first fundraising event for CF and we are excited to participate to support Shay, the CF community and to help find a cure. Once Shay was diagnosed we got busy learning and fighting for her and are thankful for opportunities like this to do more.
Even though it will be a little untraditional, I would love to gather a team together and hold a walk for CF in support of Shay. If you live in the Pittsburgh area and would like to participate with us or live outside the area and want to join virtually, please use the link below to sign up, get a t-shirt, and mark your calendar for May 15th! I will send out a location for a 5k walk with friends and family (wearing masks and walking distanced as needed) or you can join virtually along with our walk in your own neighborhood.
Our goal is to of course raise money and awareness for cystic fibrosis and the CF foundation that has been making STRIDES in medication and treatments that are providing a longer, better quality of life for those with CF and give us so much hope for Shay's future. So we encourage you to donate, walk, or help spread awareness for CF- it all helps!
Thank you so much for everyones support! We are so thankful for you all!

There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, and friends who struggle every day just to breathe. I walk for them. Will you join me and support my fundraising goal?
Real progress has been made for those who have CF, but there is still no cure for this devastating disease and many lives are cut far too short. We've come so far, but there's still so much work to do. I will not stop striding until all those with cystic fibrosis have a cure. We will not leave anyone behind.
We are at a pivotal moment in the history of cystic fibrosis and your support matters. With your help, we can invest our resources in research today, while raising funds for tomorrow, to ensure we have what it takes to reach the finish line. Together, we can make CF stand for Cure Found. Please help me reach my fundraising goal!
