About Our Great Strides Walk
Our 2021 Central Ohio Chapter Great Strides theme is: “Cruising Towards A Cure.” We can “cross the finish line” together as we show the strength of our community and passion to find a cure for all people living with cystic fibrosis!
Register your team, get your "pit crew" together and join us on May 15th, 2021 as we celebrate Great Strides together virtually on Facebook Live!
Our chapter came to the very difficult decision that Great Strides will be virtual again in 2021. We wish we could come together in-person, but by participating in Great Strides you can help us stay the course and advance our mission in an uncertain time.
The CF Foundation remains committed to following the guidance of health officials and practicing an abundance of caution to ensure the health and safety of the CF community and CF Foundation staff.
Register. Register and participate virtually in this year’s Great Strides event and help us stay the course and advance our mission in an uncertain time. While we won’t be together in person, we will be together in spirit, showing the strength of our community and passion to find a cure for all people living with cystic fibrosis.
Recruit. Recruit others to participate with you! Friends, family, and co-workers can join you virtually from anywhere in the world.
Fundraise. Fundraise online by leveraging the tools in the Participant Center, the Fight CF mobile app, and Fundraise on Facebook to reach your goal. Create a virtual passion fundraising event by developing a fundraising event through your favorite hobby, activity, or passion.
Share your Journey. Wear a Great Strides shirt, team shirt, or your Cystic Fibrosis Foundation branded apparel, while you walk in your neighborhood! Track your activity on the mobile app so you and your team can walk together and with others across the country. Share how you are striding by sharing your story and posting a selfie on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Make sure to tag the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (@CF_Foundation) and use the hashtag #GreatStrides to keep the energy and momentum going strong!
Celebrate. Join us for a virtual celebration! Contact the chapter to learn more.
