About Our Great Strides Walk

We are thrilled to announce that Great Strides West Georgia is back in person for 2021! It’s time to lace up those sneakers and walk together once again as a community. Our team has missed you and cannot wait to stride for a cure on October 2nd at the University of West Georgia. We promise that the safety of the CF community will guide our decision every step of the way in planning this year’s event. Register today and join the fun!

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.

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!
