Volunteers Across the Nation Gear Up for Great Strides “Walk Weekend”

May 20, 2011

This weekend, tens of thousands of CF Foundation volunteers will lace up and step out to support the search for a cure for cystic fibrosis by walking in Great Strides, the largest national CF fundraiser.

More than 200 cities nationwide will host Great Strides walks May 21-22 to help reach the goal of raising nearly $40 million nationwide in 2011. Throughout the year, some 600 sites will hold Great Strides walks.

Watch a special video message from Robert J. Beall, Ph.D., Foundation president and CEO, about why this weekend’s walkers have a little extra bounce in their steps:
