Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Great Strides Walk
May 20, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am
30th Anniversary of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Great Strides Walk at New Canaan High School. Funds raised will go directly towards research towards a cure for cystic fibrosis. Cystic Fibrosis is a rare genetic disease that progressively limits the ability to breathe. To combat this condition, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation was founded in 1955 by parents desperate to save their children’s lives. Their impassioned determination to prolong life has resulted in tremendous strides over the past 60 years in accelerating research and drug development. Events such as the Great Strides walk will draw over 500 people from Fairfield County to help raise awareness and funds!
