Event Description:About Great Strides Walk today. Add tomorrows. Great Strides is the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's largest national fundraising event. More than 250,000 walkers come together each year as one community for one cause…to help find a cure for CF. We’re looking forward to a great event in 2013! Each year, Great Strides continues to gain momentum, as do our research efforts and progress toward a cure. In 2012, nearly $40 million was raised to help support life-saving research, quality care, and education programs. Real progress toward a cure has been made, but the lives of young people with CF are still cut far too short. We urgently need the public’s continued support fulfill our mission and help extend the lives of those with the disease.
Event Other Detail:Recently, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has been able to make enormous breakthroughs to treat the underlying cause of CF. We are so close to a cure... we need help to spread the word in the area!
