CF is the most common fatal genetic disorder in the U.S. and there is no federal funding. The Great Strides walk is an annual event to raise funds – 90% go toward research at the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
The Great Strides walk this year is scheduled for Sunday, May 19 in Southbury. For more info click below.
