There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. We walk for them. Will you join us? All we need you to do to become a member of our team is click on the "Join our Team" button. From there you can make a donation and start your fundraising.
By becoming a member of our team and making a donation, you are joining a growing group of people committed to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis. Together, we are adding tomorrows to the lives of people living with CF by supporting the search for a cure.
Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.
Personal Note from Ryan:
I was honored last year as a 2018 National Ambassador for the Great Strides campaign so I'm excited to see what we do for our follow up efforts! While I have not always been very public about having this disease, I wanted to put this event together and invite my friends and family in helping me support this cause. I have set a goal of raising $3,000 for my team but please do not feel obligated to donate money. Any and all support is greatly appreciated and no amount is too little. We CRUSHED this goal last year and we have progressively gotten better each year.
The walk will be held on May 4th in Addison at Vitruvian Park. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me should you have any questions at all.
Thanks everyone for your continued support and I appreciate all of your help in raising money and awareness for this cause! Please don't forget to register if you plan on attending the event!
Important note on Attendance at Foundation Events:
Infections can exacerbate CF symptoms and worsen lung function, so we ask attendees at Foundation-sponsored events to observe the following best practices to reduce the risk of germ transmission:
Regularly wash hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel.
Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your inner elbow.
Maintain a safe 6-foot distance from anyone with a cold or infection.
To further reduce the risk of cross-infection, the Foundation’s attendance policy recommends that all people with CF maintain a safe 6-foot distance from each other at all times while attending an outdoor Foundation-sponsored event. All Great Strides walks are non-smoking events.
