Great Strides, hosted by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CF Foundation) is the largest national fundraising event for cystic fibrosis. Over 125,000 people a year lace up their walking shoes to raise money for a cure for the rare genetic disorder that damages the lungs and digestive system and makes it hard to breathe.
Great Strides hosts hundreds of walks every year and all their money goes towards supporting the cf Foundation.
The CF Foundation is engaged in research and drug development to find a cure for this disease. They also work with patients to find specific and customized care that helps each person living with CF have a better quality of life.
Because of the funds made by Great Strides walks, people with CF have better medicine than ever before, live longer, and have better quality of life. However, the lives of people with CF are still cut much too short!
As the search for a cure for cystic fibrosis continues, Great Strides wants to invite you to be a part of the search for a cure.
Friends, families, students, and co-workers alike all have an opportunity to be a part of the search for a Cure!
