About Our Great Strides Walk
Important note: The South Austin Great Strides Walk will be merged with the Austin Great Strides walk which will be held on Saturday, October 3 at Mueller Lake Park.
We hope that you can join us, but if this date/location does not work for you we also have a Killeen-Temple Walk on Saturday, September 26 in Harker Heights, TX.
For more than 30 years, Great Strides – the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s largest national fundraising event – has supported the Foundation’s mission to cure cystic fibrosis, a rare, genetic disease that has robbed people of tomorrows, progressively limiting their ability to breathe and tragically shortening life.
Great Strides provides a fantastic opportunity for family, friends, students, and colleagues to come together and make a difference for those with CF. The event harnesses the power of people with a shared vision and encourages collaboration, team building, and leadership, as we collectively take steps to find a cure.
Registration is free, but walkers are encouraged to raise funds. Your support will help the CF Foundation pursue new therapies and provide vital support to meet the needs of our community. We are committed to exploring all science that has real potential to deliver a cure and the funds raised at Great Strides will help us reach our goal.
Sign up to walk in Great Strides today. Together, we can make CF stand for Cure Found!
The CF Foundation is going cashless! If you are planning on making a donation on the day of the walk, we encourage you to bring your checkbooks or credit cards and avoid cash.
