COME JOIN OUR ARMY ON MAY 19th! Ava's Army has been involved with Great Strides for the 7th year now & our team continues to grow in numbers! With each passing year, drug advances are making HUGE successes ~ YOUR dollars are helping find a cure for our daughter & thousands of those suffering from this disease on a daily basis! The drug(s) that could give Ava a chance at a normal life, are in the trial phases of drug approval with the FDA. Our hope is that this time NEXT YEAR, Ava will have access to the very meds that will promise a long future!!!
The CF Foundation does NOT receive federal money for research, which is why your involvement with the walk & donations is absolutely vital to the development of these medications. Because of these advances, people with CF can plan to go to college & start a career & even a family. Some are now able to plan for grandkids & retirement!!!
Thank you for taking the time and money to donate to our cause! LET’S MAKE CF STAND FOR CURE FOUND!!!

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.
