Walk for the Cure to Cystic Fibrosis

The Michigan chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis (CF) Foundation is sponsoring Ann Arbor Great Strides 5K Run/Walk at 10 a.m., May 13, at Washtenaw Community College. Check-in is at 10 a.m.; walk at 11 a.m. Funds raised are used to accelerate the development of lifesaving new therapies, provide high-quality, specialized care and programs that support people with CF and their families, and to pursue daring new opportunities to one day find a lifelong cure.

            Cystic fibrosis is a progressive, genetic disease that affects the lungs, pancreas and other organs. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is the world’s leader in the search for a cure for CF and supports a broad range of research initiatives to tackle the disease. Every Great Strides participant is driven by a dream that all people with cystic fibrosis should have the chance to live a long, healthy life. Joining Great Strides can help make a difference for people living with CF.

Donors can participate in person or virtually to ensure that everyone with CF has the chance to live a long, healthy life. Location: 4800 E. Huron River Dr., Ann Arbor. Register at For more information, call 248-269-8759 or email [email protected].
