Great Strides 2023 is November! I am once again Team Leader for “M&M’s Find a Cure Team”.
Great Strides will be Tuesday, November 14, 2023 at the Houston Zoo during their festive Holiday Zoo Lights! It will be an in-person event and I’m hoping you will register to walk with our Team.
By joining our team and making a donation, you are joining a growing group of people committed to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis. We will not rest until all those with cystic fibrosis have a cure. The time is now. Together, we can conquer this disease.
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF), along with many other charitable organizations, have been severely affected by COVID-19. This event is extremely important this year since we missed having our event in 2020.
Cystic fibrosis is a genetic disease that affects tens of thousands of children and adults in the United States. In recent years our foundation has made enormous strides in developing new treatments to help those affected by CF live more normal lives. Our commitment is that we will not leave a single person behind; while the proven therapies have helped more than ninety percent of the CF population, there is still a very large number of patients that need our help.There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. We walk for them.
