You, your friends and colleagues can take giant steps at Snoqualmie’s Centennial Park on Saturday, Sept. 22, to find a cure for cystic fibrosis, the number-one genetic killer of children and young adults in the country.
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Great Strides, which raises funds to help fund research to find a cure for CF, is a fun, family-oriented celebration that includes a healthy walk, Kids’ Corner activities, food, and festivities. The Snoqualmie event is sponsored by the foundation’s Washington chapter.
Last year, Great Strides walks throughout Washington and Alaska netted almost $1 million. This year’s Great Strides walk in Snoqualmie begins with check-in at 10 a.m.; the walk begins at 11 a.m.
Teams can register for at www.cff.org/greatstrides, then start collecting donations. Many companies have matching funds as well.
