Join our team and help us get one step closer to a cure for
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. 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.

this disease. Together, let’s make CF stand for Cure Found!
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.
