Great Strides - Northern Colorado/Ft. Collins

Great Strides is the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's largest national fundraising event. Each year, more than 125,000 people participate in hundreds of walks across the country to raise funds for cystic fibrosis research and drug development.

Great Strides continues to gain momentum, as do our research efforts and the progress we’ve made in the search for a cure. The CF Foundation has raised and invested hundreds of millions of dollars to support the development of new CF drugs and therapies. But the lives of people with this disease are still cut far too short. We need the public’s continued support to fulfill our mission of finding a cure and improving the quality of life of those with the disease.

Walks are held at nearly 600 locations nationwide and are open to the public. Great Strides provides a fantastic opportunity for family, friends, students, co-workers and colleagues to come together in support of a worthy cause.

Walk in Great Strides today and help add tomorrows to the lives of those living with cystic fibrosis."

You can chose to join a team, create a team, or walk as an individual.  There is no sign up cost, but a donation is encouraged to join the walk.

Sign up starts at 8:00 AM and the walk begins at 9:00 AM, there will be music, beverages, and some food provided for those who join the walk.
