The CF Foundation is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to attacking cystic fibrosis from every angle. Our main focus is to raise public awareness about the disease, and to develop new drugs in order to improve the lives of the children and young adults living with CF. Ultimately, our organizations goal is to find a cure for cystic fibrosis.
This spring, we are holding our annual Great Strides walk campaign. The walk is the signature event of the CF Foundation. 600 walks take place across the country. . Great Strides 2012 had over 250,000 walkers nationwide and raised over $40 million. Greater New York is hosting 10 walks in NYC, Westchester, Lower Hudson Valley, and Long Island. The Greater New York chapter raised over $3.2 million for the CF research.
