CFF raises $222K during 2010 Great Strides events

Thousands of Northeast Floridians recently took to the streets, trails, and walkways in support of a curecff during the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Great Strides Walks, which took place throughout April and May in Northeast Florida. The foundation raised more than $222,000 with donations continuing to come in from the seven spring walks and two fall walks yet to come. Great Strides is the foundation’s largest national fundraiser, producing more than $33 million in 2009 to support vital cystic fibrosis research and programs.

Two additional Great Strides walks will take place this year, including the Bradford County at Shands-Starke walk at 8 a.m. on Sept. 11 and the Flagler County Great Strides walk at 8 a.m. on Sept. 25. To support Great Strides with sponsorship or to register for one of the upcoming walks, contact the North Florida Cystic Fibrosis Foundation at (904) 733-3560 or visit
