About Our Walk

For 30 years, Great Strides – the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s largest national fundraising event – has supported the Foundation’s mission to cure cystic fibrosis and raise awareness for this rare, genetic, life-shortening disease that makes it difficult to breathe and shortens lives. 

The Amherst Great Strides walk provides a fantastic opportunity for family, friends, students, and colleagues to come together and make a difference in the lives of people with CF. The event harnesses the power of people with a shared vision and encourages collaboration, team building, and leadership, as we collectively take steps to find a cure. 

Registration is free, but walkers are encouraged to raise funds. Your support will help accelerate innovative research and drug development, as well as advance care and advocacy. Nearly every CF drug was made possible by the Foundation and because of funds raised from Great Strides, people with CF are living longer, healthier lives and pursuing their dreams. 

We are working every day to build on this incredible momentum, and we won’t stop until there is a cure for all people living with CF. 

Sign up to walk in Great Strides today and join us as we take steps towards a cure. 

The time is now. Together, we can cross the finish line. 

Let’s LACE UP. WALK. CURE CYSTIC FIBROSIS.
