•  Great Strides for Cystic Fibrosis - 5k WALK - Join TEAM ANDREA or start a team of your own and help raise funds to find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis.

The 5k Walk will begin at Westfield Valencia Town Center. Last year this event raised $85,000 towards research.

Cystic Fibrosis is a chronic and progressive disease that begins at birth. Only 70,000 people worldwide have it, 3,000 US Residents, therefore the government does provide funding or assistance. This means private donations and fundraisers like this are the only way to get to the cure. Thank you for your support!
