This year we've seen some amazing things in the treatment of Cystic Fibrosis, but the fight is not over yet! Let's do this! UNTIL IT'S DONE!
Let's make CF stand for Cure Found!!
I started the team in 2005 after a close friend passed away from Cystic Fibrosis on my 16th birthday. Since then I've been dedicated to helping raise awareness and funds for the disease. I have participated in every walk for the past 16 years. If you know me, which I assume you do if you're visiting this page, I'm sure you've met or heard of Brandy, Cindles, Mebsie or Alan, to name a few. The list goes on. These are the reasons I fight so hard for a cure for CF.
I walk for those who fight, I walk for those who I've lost.
I may not suffer with CF, but I definitely suffer from it!
Join our team and help add tomorrows!
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? To become a member of our team, just click on the "Join our Team" button. From there you can make a donation and start your fundraising.
By becoming a member and making a donation, you are joining a growing group of people committed to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis. Together, we are adding tomorrows to the lives of people living with CF by supporting the search for a cure.
Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.
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.
