Great Strides Walk
Sunday May 26, 2013
Cystic Fibrosis Canada is making great strides, because others take strides. Every year across Canada, friends, family and colleagues of Canadians with cystic fibrosis lace up their walking shoes to participate in the Great Strides™ walk, our flagship national fundraising event.
2013 marks the ninth year for the Great Strides™ walk in Canada. Year after year, volunteers make every Great Strides™ walk site family friendly and successful. Their dedication has helped the Great Strides™ walk to become our most effective fundraising event. Since the walk began in Canada, it has raised more than $16 million over the past eight years.
The Great Strides Walk registration site is now open. We have four walks in our area:
·Calgary – North Glenmore Park
·Medicine Hat - Kin Coulee Band Shelter Medicine Hat
·Lethbridge - Galt Gardens
·Crowsnest Pass- Fireman’s Par
Registration for the
