Join our team, Emily's Hope and help add tomorrows for Emily and all with Cystic Fibrosis!
We are doing something different this year and walking on SATURDAY, MAY 18th AT EAGLE MOUNTAIN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, 9700 Morris Dido Newark Road, Fort Worth, TX 76179. Please still sign up for the "official" Fort Worth walk on May 19th, just know we won't be there that day. :)
Emily and approximately 30,000 Americans are living with Cystic Fibrosis. They struggle every day just to breathe. We walk for them.
Over the last 9 years, Emily’s Hope has partnered with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, an organization established to find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. Thanks to your generosity, Emily’s Hope has raised more than $500,000.00 and $175,000 last year alone! This year, we have raised our goal to $200,000 – a challenge that I know you can help us achieve.

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. Our walk takes place in Fort Worth on Saturday, May 18th. Please come out and join us!
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.
