Virtual Walk to Make Cystic Fibrosis History ~ May 30th
17th Annual Walk to Make Cystic Fibrosis History Goes Virtual, Again
MAY IS CYSTIC FIBROSIS AWARENESS MONTH
Cystic Fibrosis Canada asks participants/walkers to #GoFurtherFor Canadians living with Cystic Fibrosis. Children, parents and individuals living with CF push through unimaginable challenges every single day – they go further because they must.
AS A COMMUNITY LET’S SHOW OUR SUPPORT BY TAKING PART IN THIS YEAR’S CHALLENGE!
Pushing even further, challenging ourselves to break records and choosing our own virtual challenge!
• Walk, run or ride a distance of your choice
• Push-up challenge
• Artistic expressions
• Walk a certain number of laps around your backyard
• Run 5k every day for a week
Participants have the freedom to complete their walk, their way, on their own time from now until the end of Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month (May 30th).
Walkers will set a fundraising goal, choose an activity/challenge of interest to them (with consideration of proper social distancing), and share it with their networks and ask for support via social media.

“Last year, we were blown away by the response to our virtual event format from our incredible volunteer and donor community,” says Carly Schur, Chief Development Officer for Cystic Fibrosis Canada. “With the unfortunate situation of the COVID-19 pandemic still creating risks for in-person events, we have transitioned once again to a virtual format. We are hopeful that our community of strong, passionate supporters will again come together, virtually, to raise vital funds to support our work.”
For the past 16 years, the Walk to Make Cystic Fibrosis History, Cystic Fibrosis Canada’s largest fundraising event, has taken place in over 70 locations across Canada where thousands of people walk for a cure or control for cystic fibrosis. Since its inception in 2005, the Walk to Make Cystic Fibrosis History has raised over $38 million in peer-to-peer fundraising to support advocacy initiatives including access to life-changing medications, CF research, and high-quality individualized care.
