Taking Great Strides towards adding tomorrows every day!
The Washington Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation welcomes you to its annual Great Strides walk-a-thon on Monday, May 20. The walk site for this day will be located at the Mural Amphitheatre in the Seattle Center and will commence at 12:00PM. Great Strides is the CF Foundation’s largest fund-raising event that provides opportunities for all people within a local community to get involved as tens of thousands of people across the country join to form teams through their workplace, through clubs and organizations or with friends and family.
In all the cities across the United States, people just like you are showing their commitment to “adding tomorrows every day” to the lives of those with cystic fibrosis through the simple act of walking. Each year, Great Strides continues to gain momentum, as does the CFF’s research efforts and progress toward discovering a cure. Volunteers contribute to making every walk site both fun and successful as their perpetual dedication helps Great Strides become one of the country’s most effective and efficient fundraising efforts.
Since the first Great Strides walk in 1989, over $214 million has been raised to support the vital research and care programs of the CF Foundation. This is a fun, family-oriented celebration that includes a healthy walk, Kids’ Corner activities, food, and festivities that participants look forward to year after year.
