Welcome to our 2022 Zen Walkers fundraising page!
We are thrilled to be walking in our 14th Great Strides walk in Santa Cruz on October 22nd. Yes, its true, Zen is 14 years old and we couldnt be more proud of him. He is a freshman in high school and continues to be passionate about all that life has to offer. He is playing Ultimate frisbee, rock-climbing, bouldering, Go-karting and well, about every other sport he can try. He hopes to drive as a professional in motor sports one day. Thanks to the incredible work of foundations like the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, he is thriving on his new medication, Trikafta. We are so grateful to every single person who has supported the research for a cure.
The walk will begin at the gorgeous Natural Bridges State Park. ALL are welcome to join for a splendid walk along the ocean. If you would like to Join our team and help us get one step closer to a cure for cystic fibrosis – a rare, genetic, life-shortening disease that makes it difficult to breathe, we would love to have you join too!!
With supporters like you by our side, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation continues to lead the way in the fight against CF, fueling extraordinary medical and scientific progress. The life expectancy of someone born with CF has doubled in the last 30 years. Despite this progress, many people with CF do not benefit from existing therapies either because their disease is too advanced or because their specific genetic mutations will not respond. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers who struggle every day in the face of this devasting disease.
