About CFF

Our Mission: 

The mission of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is to cure cystic fibrosis and to provide all people with the disease the opportunity to lead full, productive lives by funding research and drug development, promoting individualized treatment, and ensuring access to high-quality, specialized care.


Passion Fundraising:

A passion fundraising event is created when a participant is inspired by their favorite hobby or pastime to develop a unique fundraising event or opportunity.  Passion fundraising allows participants to elevate their Special Event fundraising efforts by getting friends, family and community involved in a fun, exciting and personalized way. The CFF passion fundraising website will help bring your passion fundraising event to life. This new fundraising tool will help you diversify your fundraising efforts and reach new goals for your team. Whether you are a team leader, team member, individual or virtual participant anyone can start a passion fundraising event!


Cystic Fibrosis Foundation:

Since 1955, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has been the driving force behind the pursuit of a cure. Thanks to the dedication and financial backing of our supporters — patients, families and friends, clinicians, researchers, volunteers, individual donors, corporations and staff, we are making a difference.  To learn more about the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation visit www.cff.org.

By participating in a Great Strides event and organizing a passion fundraising event, you are taking a proactive and innovative approach to raise important funds to help find a cure for all people living with cystic fibrosis.

Great Strides:

Great Strides is the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's largest national fundraising event. Each year, more than 125,000 people participate in hundreds of walks across the country to raise funds for cystic fibrosis research and drug development.  Great Strides continues to gain momentum, as do our research efforts and the progress we’ve made in the search for a cure. 


CF Cycle for Life: 

CF Cycle for Life offers the perfect opportunity for cycling enthusiasts of all skill levels to come together and ride in support of a worthy cause. The Foundation hosts Cycle events in dozens of cities across the country to raise funds and awareness for cystic fibrosis.


CF Climb: 

CF Climb takes the search for a cure to new heights. Challenge yourself, your friends or your coworkers as you race to the top of a tall building or stadium in a test of will and endurance to raise funds for cystic fibrosis.


Xtreme Hike: 

Xtreme Hike events take you through some of the most scenic trails in the nation. It’s a journey of passion, determination and personal triumph, and an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of people with CF. Hikers participate in a training program to prepare them for this ultimate endurance challenge.

The CF Foundation has raised and invested hundreds of millions of dollars to support the development of new CF drugs and therapies. But the lives of people with this disease are still cut far too short.  Register for Great Strides, CF Cycle for Life, CF Climb or Xtreme Hike to start a passion fundraising event of your own at http://fightcf.cff.org.
