About Our Great Strides Walk
We can’t wait to bring the CF community together for Great Strides!
Every 2021 CF Foundation event will feature several virtual components and experiences to help make a difference for people living with cystic fibrosis. The CF Foundation will also host a very small number of in-person events that can safely be held outdoors.
Stay up to date on how our chapter plans to safely bring the community together and make CF stand for Cure Found by registering today.
Register. Register and participate virtually in this year’s Great Strides event and help us stay the course and advance our mission in an uncertain time. While we won’t be together in person, we will be together in spirit, showing the strength of our community and passion to find a cure for all people living with cystic fibrosis.
Recruit. Recruit others to participate with you! Friends, family, and co-workers can join you virtually from anywhere in the world.
Fundraise. Fundraise online by leveraging the tools in the Participant Center, the Fight CF mobile app, and Fundraise on Facebook to reach your goal. Create a virtual passion fundraising event by developing a fundraising event through your favorite hobby, activity, or passion.
Share your Journey. Wear a Great Strides shirt, team shirt, or your Cystic Fibrosis Foundation branded apparel, while you walk in your neighborhood! Track your activity on the mobile app so you and your team can walk together and with others across the country. Share how you are striding by sharing your story and posting a selfie on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Make sure to tag the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (@CF_Foundation) and use the hashtag #GreatStrides to keep the energy and momentum going strong!
