Foundation Launches New Great Strides Website
October 24, 2013
The CF Foundation announced today the launch of a new Great Strides website that provides users with more powerful tools to fundraise more effectively.
The new site offers a streamlined design and enhanced features:
- Quick and easy social media sharing via Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
- Leaderboard of top fundraisers and teams will be prominently displayed for each walk.
- Walkers can easily solicit donations via email, text and social media while on the go through a new Great Strides mobile app.
Great Strides events are held at more than 500 sites across the country every year, and raise more than $40 million to help support CF research, education and care.
“We are thrilled to introduce a new Great Strides website that adds excitement and momentum to one of our most important national fundraisers,” said C. Richard Mattingly, chief operating officer and executive vice president of the CF Foundation. “The site is simple, social and mobile, and provides a critical new tool that will accelerate fundraising, and ultimately, a cure.”
Funds raised through Great Strides have helped spur dramatic progress in the treatment of cystic fibrosis. Virtually every approved CF drug available today was made possible through CF Foundation support and the life expectancy of a child with CF has doubled in the last 30 years.
The CF Foundation is an accredited charity of the Better Business Bureau’s Wise Giving Alliance and is one of the most efficient organizations of its kind.
