Welcome!

Welcome to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Greater New York Chapter – Manhattan Headquarters. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) is the world’s leader in the search for a cure for cystic fibrosis (CF). We fund more CF research than any other organization, and nearly every CF drug available today was made possible because of Foundation support. Our mission is to assure the development of the means to cure and control cystic fibrosis and to improve the quality of life for those with the disease.


2013 Great Strides New York City

2013 New York City
Great Strides Walk.
 

To achieve our goals, we partner with supporters who share our common vision of a world without cystic fibrosis. Together, we raise awareness and funds by holding fundraising events throughout all five boroughs of New York City. We hope that you will share in our cause by joining an event committee; recruiting companies, families and friends to start Great Strides walk teams; signing up to bike in our Cycle for Life event; volunteering time at our office; or joining our Young Professional Leadership Committee. Your involvement will help us reach our goals. Please take a moment to visit our events calendar below.

Speak Out. Get Involved. Inspire Action.

Advocacy is just one more way you can
make a difference for people with CF.
Inspire your elected officals.

"The messages of families living with CF are a powerful call to action that resonates in Washington, DC and reminds all of us of the urgent need to find a cure for this devastating disease. As co-chair of the Congressional Cystic Fibrosis Caucus, I can tell you that elected officials need to hear from their constituents dealing with CF so they can understand how you feel and how important this issue is."
--Congressional
Cystic Fibrosis Caucus Chair Edward Markey (D-MA)
