Please donate to help us get one step closer to a cure for Cystic Fibrosis!
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, and friends who struggle every day just to breathe. I walk for them.
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, 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.
Why we walk:
Delta Sigma Pi walks in memory of our dear friend, Gabby Ives, who passed away 5 years ago after battling Cystic Fibrosis for 18 years.
Gabby never let CF define her. She pushed through her treatments with a bright smile on her face, and she brought joy to those around her. When you join our team or make a donation, you stand up for CF patients like Gabby who lost their lives too soon, but you also stand up for CF patients who are continuing to fight their symptoms, each and everyday.
We walk in celebration of Gabby’s life, and in gratitude of the exceptionally positive influence that she had on each of our lives. We walk as allies of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. We walk for the patients who are continuously battling Cystic Fibrosis, and for them, we hope for a cure.
Please support me!
By joining our Great Strides team and making a donation, you will be part of a tenacious and passionate group of people committed to ending this disease. Together, let’s make CF stand for Cure Found!
