Great Strides 2020 has gone virtual!

Register now and get your friends and family members to be part of this iconic event! Help raise much-needed funds for cystic fibrosis!

In Victoria, most of us have been in lockdown with only a limited time to enjoy the start of spring in Melbourne, while in NSW, things have been a bit more relaxed.

What better way to get out and stretch your legs than to participate in this year’s first virtual Great Strides event in October? Get out, get fit, fundraise and you can make a difference in the lives of those living with cystic fibrosis.

Register now for our first annual virtual run! Put on your running shoes, bring a pal and set off on a course of your choosing. If you’re having trouble, download our Family and team registration information.

As a virtual event, Great Strides 2020 can be enjoyed anytime, anywhere – so this event will be accessible to as many people as possible, all while keeping the community safe.

Some good news too! This year, Great Strides will be held over seven days, commencing on Sunday 25 October through to Saturday 31 October.

Run, walk or skip your way through a half marathon, 5k or 10k. You can do it your way. This means you’ll be able to map out your own route around your local area and together, the CF community will unite for one walk/run across many locations in both Victoria and New South Wales!

While this is a virtual event, we couldn’t let you go without, so we have put together a fantastic registration package for you this year. Each participant for Great Strides 2020 will receive a race pack with a race bib, participation medal and CFCC merchandise, which will be sent to you via Australia Post.

This year, we strongly encourage participants to wear their cystic fibrosis t-shirts, caps and/or singlets, or a plain red t-shirt, so we can create a ‘sea of red’ – VIRTUALLY.

Great Strides is about raising awareness of cystic fibrosis and funds for Cystic Fibrosis Community Care. That’s why we need your HELP this October. Get your team together and spread the word. Let’s make sure we show those living with cystic fibrosis that we care and support them every step of the way.
