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. Will you join us?
Tanner has been living with CF since birth and has been a CF warrior since his 1st breath. With the help, support and love of all our friends and family Tanner has been able to live a life full of smiles and greatness. He is a passionate soccer player, falling in love with the game since he was 4 as a way to keep his lungs strong and healthy. He continues to play at the highschool level. He is also an avid snowboarder who seemlessly glides down the mountain. Tanner spends hours of every day taking medications and performing treatments specific to CF. These treatments have never kept him from staying active or living a fun filled life. Tanner was promoted to the best big brother ever in 2016, an honor he cherishes every minute because of the life changing medications made available from the help of donations thru the CFF. While we have made "Great Strides" in the Cystic Fibrosis disease and community, we still have a long way to go for a cure.

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.
