Great Strides


After the run, stick around for our Great Strides walk. Great Strides is the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's largest national event. More than 250,000 walkers around the country come together each year as one community for one cause: to help find a cure for CF. Locally, the Greater Illinois Chapter has a fundraising goal of over $2.3 million dollars across 9 Chicagoland walk sites. Participants of Great Strides are raising money to benefit more than 1,000 families in the Chicago metropolitan area who are waging a daily battle with CF. The Foundation is an accredited charity of the Better Business Bureau's Wise Giving Alliance, meeting all of its Standards for Charitable Accountability. We take great pride in being one of the most efficient and effective organizations of our kind, and are careful stewards of every dollar raised in support of our mission.

Important note on attendance for people with CF and their families:
The health and well-being of people with cystic fibrosis is our top priority. Medical evidence shows that certain bacteria can be passed between individuals who have CF and can lead to worse symptoms and speed decline in lung function. To limit the serious risk of cross-infection between people with CF, only one person with CF may be invited to attend the indoor portion of each CF Foundation-sponsored event.  For the outdoor portion of the event, people with CF should maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from each other.

Please note: People with CF and their families should be aware that individuals with CF might choose to attend Foundation events or meetings without notifying event organizers. We strongly discourage this; however, we cannot guarantee that only one person with CF will be present at any indoor Foundation event. For more information, please call your local chapter.
