By participating in Great Strides as a national civic team, we are making a difference in the communities that we work in and at the same time, we are making an incredible difference to the lives of all people with cystic fibrosis (CF).
Great Strides is the CF Foundation’s largest fundraising event and we are walking as a company this year to help find a cure for CF! We would like to invite you to join us. You’ll be helping to achieve our national corporate team goal while having fun in your offices, and engaging locally with your community.
By utilizing the same results-driven approach of a successful, for-profit company, the CF Foundation has created an innovative business model that is making a difference in the lives of those with cystic fibrosis. Today, nearly half of all people with CF are adults over the age of 18 and we can be a part of advancing this progress and helping to find a treatment or cure for ALL people with CF!

Foundation-Sponsored Indoor and Outdoor Events and Gatherings
The Foundation is closely following the evolving coronavirus outbreak. We will continue to monitor coronavirus guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and assess whether we need to change any scheduled events.
To reduce the risk of getting and spreading germs at CF Foundation-sponsored events, we ask that everyone follow basic best practices by regularly cleaning your hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel, covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your inner elbow, and maintaining a safe 6-foot distance from anyone with a cold or infection. Medical evidence shows that germs may spread among people with CF through direct and indirect contact, as well as through droplets that travel short distances when a person coughs or sneezes. These germs can lead to worsening symptoms and speed decline in lung function.
To further help reduce the risk of cross-infection, the Foundation's attendance policy recommends inviting only one person with CF to attend the indoor portion of a Foundation-sponsored event at a specific time. For the outdoor portion, the Foundation recommends that all people with CF maintain a safe 6-foot distance from each other at all times.
