Featured Upcoming Event – Great Strides 2016

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has changed the look and feel of Great Strides to better represent the faces of the entire cystic fibrosis community. The creative process was inclusive, involving patients, families, past and current Great Strides participants, and corporate supporters. All of the new materials were carefully selected in an effort to accurately portray the many faces of CF. Images of people both young and old are meant to inspire, and pictures of patients with breathing tubes depict the reality that cystic fibrosis is not always an “invisible disease.”

For many years, the Great Strides tag line has been "Walk Today. Add Tomorrows." Our new Great Strides tag line for 2016 is: “Lace Up. Walk. Cure cystic fibrosis.”This new language reflects our ultimate goal and indicates the active role that we each play in finding a cure for CF.
