Join our Team Andy 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. This event is personal to us, since Andy was born with CF.
With supporters like you by our side, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation continues to lead the way in the fight against CF, fueling extraordinary medical and scientific progress. The life expectancy of someone born with CF has doubled in the last 30 years. Despite this progress, many people with CF do not benefit from existing therapies either because their disease is too advanced or because their specific genetic mutations will not respond. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers who struggle every day in the face of this devasting disease.
We walk in Great Strides for them.
Will you join us?
Great Strides is a fun event that provides a fantastic opportunity for family, friends, students, and colleagues to come together to make a difference in the lives of people with CF.

Thank you for your support <3
Hola y bienvenido,
Gracias por visitar nuestra pagina :)
Unete a nuestro equipo Team Andy y ayudanos a estar un paso mas cerca de una cura para la fibrosis quistica, una enfermedad rara, genetica, que acorta la vida y dificulta la respiracion.
Con apoyo como el tuyo a nuestro lado, la Fundacion de Fibrosis Quistica continua liderando el camino en la lucha contra la FQ, impulsando un extraordinario progreso medico y cientifico. La esperanza de vida de una persona que nace con FQ se ha duplicado en los ultimos 30 anos. A pesar de este progreso, muchas personas con FQ no se benefician de las terapias existentes porque su enfermedad esta demasiado avanzada o porque sus mutaciones geneticas especficas no responderan. Aquellos son mamas, papas, hermanas, hermanos, hijas, hijos, amigos y compaeros de trabajo que luchan dia a dia frente a esta devastadora enfermedad.
Caminamos a Grandes Pasos por ellos.
Great Strides es un evento especial que brinda una oportunidad fantstica para que la familia, los amigos, estudiantes y colegas se reunan para marcar una diferencia en la vida de las personas con FQ.

IMPORTANT NOTE ON ATTENDANCE AT FOUNDATION EVENTS:
Updated June 15, 2022. To reduce the risk of COVID-19 the Foundation is taking steps to host safe events for our community. Please be advised that events may be subject to change at any time based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local health officials.
To minimize the risk of COVID-19 infection, we ask that attendees at CF Foundation events follow these steps:
Where mandated, practice physical distancing and maintain at least a safe 6-foot distance from persons outside of their household.
Face masks are encouraged and should 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 only attend outdoor CF Foundation events where they are able to distance and stay within their family group.) NOTE: For events hosted by the CF Foundation, masks will be made available on-site, when possible.
Follow basic infection, prevention and control practices by regularly washing hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel, and by 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.
For indoor events, it is CFF policy to invite only one person with CF to be in-person at the event at a time. For outdoor events, people with CF should maintain a safe 6-foot distance from persons outside of their household at all times.
FOR YOUR SAFETY AND THE SAFETY OF OTHERS:
For the health and well-being of the CF community, we strongly encourage that participants be fully vaccinated and have received the CDC recommended booster shot when joining us in-person for the event.
Certain CF Foundation events may require vaccination to attend.
Participants are strongly encouraged to test within 24 hours prior of arrival at an event or meeting, or as close as possible to the time of departure (if traveling).
Please be advised certain events, localities, and venues may require you to be fully vaccinated and show proof of vaccination. We will communicate these requirements in event communications.
For events where the CF Foundation requires full vaccination, meeting participants must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 at least two weeks before the date on which you will first attend the meeting. Registration and attendance at such events may require agreement to health and safety protocols and/or COVID liability waivers.
We are counting on the fact that you appreciate the potential consequences of exposing members of the CF community to COVID-19 and will not attend an event if you test positive, or have been recently exposed to COVID-19.
We cannot guarantee that all people present at the event, including participants, sponsors, volunteers, vendors, or others, have been fully vaccinated.
