Cystic Fibrosis awareness month


That's the number of people who suffer from Cystic Fibrosis in the US alone. Most of them are children and young adults.

GREAT STRIDES: Taking Steps to Cure Cystic Fibrosis is the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's largest national fund-raising event. Tens of thousands of co-workers, friends and family come together each year as one community for one cause…to help find a cure for CF. Every penny raised by Great Strides goes directly into funding research for better drugs and treatments. Every day that passes by means one day closer to the cure.

In 2007, more than $34 million was raised to support vital CF programs.

The goal for 2008 is $40 million. Please help an any capacity you can.
