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!
We’re proud to be a part of this game-changing and efficient organization. So, sign up today! Here’s how you can participate:

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.
FOR YOUR SAFETY AND THE SAFETY OF OTHERS:
For the health and wellbeing of the CF community, those eligible to be vaccinated are required to be fully vaccinated to join us in-person for the event. If you are not fully vaccinated, we invite you to participate virtually if that option exists.
We do not plan to ask for you to provide proof of vaccination. We are, however, counting on the fact that you appreciate the potential consequences of exposing members of the CF community to COVID and will abide by this requirement.
We cannot guarantee that all people in attendance at the event, including participants, sponsors, volunteers, and vendors, have been fully vaccinated.
