Fundraising Resources

Real progress toward a cure has been made, but the lives of young people with CF are still cut far too short. We need your support to help add tomorrows for people with the disease. When you lace up and walk to cure Cystic Fibrosis, you make a difference!

Fundraising Tips

Once you’ve registered for a Great Strides walk, it’s time to start your fundraising campaign!

Raising funds is easy once you get started. Follow these simple steps, and you’ll be well on your way to meeting and exceeding your fundraising goal!

  1. Make a donation to yourself. It’s a great way to show your supporters that you are committed to the cause.
  2. Select your personal fundraising goal. Set a goal of at least $500 to become a Super Strider. Or, set a goal of $5,000 or more to become a top team.
  3. Ask your friends and family to support the cause by registering to walk on your team or making a donation. The more support you have, the easier it will be to reach your goal.
  4. Send messages to your supporters through texts, Facebook, Twitter and email through the Great Strides mobile application, and remember to check back often to monitor your fundraising progress.
