Sacramento Great Strides Volunteers

Real progress toward a cure has been made, but the lives of young people with cystic fibrosis (CF) are still cut far too short. We urgently need the public’s continued support to fulfill our mission and help add tomorrows for those with the disease.

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has raised and invested hundreds of millions of dollars to help develop CF drugs and therapies. Through our efforts, the life expectancy of a child with CF has doubled in the last 30 years, and research to find a cure is more promising than ever before.

Year after year, volunteers make every GREAT STRIDES walk site both fun and successful. Their dedication has helped GREAT STRIDES become one of the most effective and efficient fundraising efforts.

There are many volunteer opportunities available, including photography, site set-up, event wrap-up, event registration, food service, course assistance, customer service, etc.

There is something for everyone! Here are the areas where we need your help:

Clean Up: Help with breaking down tables, chairs, banners and more.

Registration Volunteers: Collect walker pledge envelopes, register participants.

Greeters: Direct participants to the right area and assist with filling out participant envelopes.

T Shirt Station: Hand out T shirts to participants who raise $100 or more.

Food Volunteers: Food volunteers will help set up food and beverages in the designated area, as well as serve food items to each participant.

Entertainers: If you are a clown, magician, balloon artist or have another unique talent and would like to donate your time, please contact us.

Photographers: We need photographers who can volunteer to take photos of teams, sponsors, start and finish line, route and celebration photos.

Mission Statement

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. We will not rest until we find a cure for all people with cystic fibrosis.

Description

The mission of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is fueled by a dedicated group of scientists, caregivers, donors, volunteers and people with CF and their families who are united by a common goal: to find a cure for this devastating disease and help those with CF live longer, healthier lives.

Research

We fund more innovative, groundbreaking CF research than any other organization in the world. We have invested hundreds of millions of dollars into CF research and drug development. Because of our efforts, people with cystic fibrosis are living longer, healthier lives and pursuing dreams they never before thought possible.

Care

We provide expert care for people with CF through our nationwide network of accredited care centers. Cystic fibrosis is a complex disease that affects every person differently. That's why we're dedicated to helping people with CF get individualized care that's tailored to their unique needs.

Support

We help people with cystic fibrosis and their families get the tools and support they need to lead healthy, productive lives, today. The incredible strides we're making in research and drug development mean nothing if people with CF don't have access to the care and therapies they need. We're working diligently to ensure all people with CF have access to the best medical, educational and financial resources available.
