Abby's Avengers was formed in 2016 to support Abby Couch and her family. Contributing to the Great Strides effort is an investment in Abby's future. Without research money, there is no hope for easier treatments, fewer daily medications, and no hope for a longer, pain-free lifetime for Abby and others that suffer from this disease.
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with Cystic Fibrosis. If you would like to join us, simply click on the "Join our Team" button. From there you can make a donation and start your fundraising!
Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with Cystic Fibrosis and their families.

Important note on Attendance at Foundation Events:
Infections can exacerbate CF symptoms and worsen lung function, so we ask attendees at Foundation-sponsored events to observe the following best practices to reduce the risk of germ transmission:
Regularly wash hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel.
Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your inner elbow.
Maintain a safe 6-foot distance from anyone with a cold or infection.
To further reduce the risk of cross-infection, the Foundation’s attendance policy recommends that all people with CF maintain a safe 6-foot distance from each other at all times while attending an outdoor Foundation-sponsored event. All Great Strides walks are non-smoking events.
