What is Great Strides?

Great Strides is a fun run and walk which raises awareness and funds for cystic fibrosis organisations around Australia.

Great Strides is our largest fundraising event, funds raised ensure that we can continue to provide essential programs and services to the CF community.

Great Strides is held in 5 cities across Australia, so why not join in more than one! In Victoria, Great Strides is held in Melbourne and in Bendigo

Ready, Set, STRIDE for CF

Corporate teams, schools, community groups and individuals are all invited to take part. Ask your colleagues, family members and friends to join you to walk, jog or run for this great cause.
