There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis & they stuggle every day just to breathe! Our 9-yr old son, Marcus, is one of them.
Every day, thousands of CF patients & their fam sit/lay in hospitals all around the world hoping & praying that a Cure for CF will be found soon!
The amount of meds that we put into Marcus' little body all day every day would shock you if you don't know a CFers daily routine just to breathe.......to live!!!!!
And the CFF is the DRIVING FORCE behind sooooo much of why Marcus & so many others are feeling such HOPE!!!! THIS IS WHY I AM WORKING SO HARD TO RAISE MONEY FOR THIS WALK!
We walk for him, & all those w/ CF, and hope you will support us in our efforts. Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.
Real progress has been for those who have CF, but there is still NO CURE for this devastating disease and many lives are cut far too short. By walking today, WE CAN HELP ADD TOMORROWS to the lives of people living with cystic fibrosis.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, indoor events sponsored by the CF Foundation are strictly prohibited at this time. Scheduled outdoor events must adhere to strict requirements to minimize the risk of COVID-19 infection. Events may be subject to change at any time based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local health officials.
IMPORTANT NOTE ON ATTENDANCE AT OUTDOOR FOUNDATION EVENTS:
To minimize the risk of COVID-19 infection, attendees at CF Foundation events must adhere to the following requirements:
Practice physical distancing and maintain at least a safe 6-foot distance from persons outside of their household at all times
Face masks strongly encouraged and expected to be worn in accordance with local guidelines. (Note, children under two years of age should not wear masks due to safety concerns and therefore should not attend CF Foundation events where there is risk of interacting with someone outside of their household.)
Follow basic infection, prevention and control practices by regularly washing hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel, covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your inner elbow.
Persons with CF should consult their physician before participation in any in-person event as they may be at an increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19. People with CF should maintain a safe 6-foot distance from persons outside of their household at all times.
FOR YOUR SAFETY AND THE SAFETY OF OTHERS:
For the health and wellbeing of the CF community, those eligible to be vaccinated are required to be fully vaccinated to join us in-person for the event. If you are not fully vaccinated, we invite you to participate virtually if that option exists.
We do not plan to ask for you to provide proof of vaccination. We are, however, counting on the fact that you appreciate the potential consequences of exposing members of the CF community to COVID and will abide by this requirement.
We cannot guarantee that all people in attendance at the event, including participants, sponsors, volunteers, and vendors, have been fully vaccinated.
