Our team is driven by a dream that one day, every person with cystic fibrosis will have the chance to live a long, healthy life. You can help us reach that goal!
Our Great Strides Story
Nearly 40,000 people in the United States have cystic fibrosis: a progressive, genetic disease that affects the lungs, pancreas, and other organs. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, and friends who face the sobering prospect of a shortened lifespan. We walk to help add tomorrows to their lives! We walk in memory of my sister, Jessica, who passed away from cf in 2015, and others we know who lost their fight against cf. We also walk in honor of those living with cf. The funds raised during Great Strides (and other CFF fundraisers) make sure research can continue which in turn results in better medications and treatments for cf individuals. Significant advancements have made over the years, especially the past few years with "modulator drugs"! That's a whole topic in itself. Suffice it to say, cf patients are living longer and fuller lives thanks to people like YOU!
