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!
Foundation-Sponsored Indoor and Outdoor Events and Gatherings
The Foundation is closely following the evolving coronavirus outbreak. We will continue to monitor coronavirus guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and assess whether we need to change any scheduled events.
To reduce the risk of getting and spreading germs at CF Foundation-sponsored events, we ask that everyone follow basic best practices by regularly cleaning your hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel, covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your inner elbow, and maintaining a safe 6-foot distance from anyone with a cold or infection. Medical evidence shows that germs may spread among people with CF through direct and indirect contact, as well as through droplets that travel short distances when a person coughs or sneezes. These germs can lead to worsening symptoms and speed decline in lung function.
To further help reduce the risk of cross-infection, the Foundation's attendance policy recommends inviting only one person with CF to attend the indoor portion of a Foundation-sponsored event at a specific time. For the outdoor portion, the Foundation recommends that all people with CF maintain a safe 6-foot distance from each other at all times.
