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 who struggle every day in the face of this devasting disease.
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. Together we can help accelerate the Foundation’s pursuit of new therapies and provide vital support to meet the needs of the CF community.
Will you please support my Great Strides fundraising goal?
I will be walking in memory of my oldest brother, Joe. He battled Cystic Fibrosis for 19 years before it took his life in 1982.

Important note on Attendance at Foundation Events:
Infections can exacerbate CF symptoms and worsen lung function, so we ask attendees at Foundation-sponsored events to observe the following best practices to reduce the risk of germ transmission:
Regularly wash hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel.
Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your inner elbow.
Maintain a safe 6-foot distance from anyone with a cold or infection.
To further reduce the risk of cross-infection, the Foundation’s attendance policy recommends that all people with CF maintain a safe 6-foot distance from each other at all times while attending an outdoor Foundation-sponsored event. All Great Strides walks are non-smoking events.
