Quick Overview: Come volunteer for a good cause! The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is holding its annual Great Strides 5k walk in Santa Barbara at Chase Palm Park from 7 AM to 1 PM.
Volunteers are the backbone of our events and we are always excited to cultivate new relationships within the community. Great Strides provides a fantastic opportunity for family, friends, students and colleagues to come together and make a difference in the lives of people with CF, while engaging with an inspiring group of individuals. We need volunteers on the day of the event to help things run smoothly.

Over the past 30 years, this walk has supported the organization’s mission to cure cystic fibrosis and raise awareness for this rare, genetic, life-shortening disease that makes it difficult to breathe and shortens lives.
The event harnesses the power of people with a shared vision and encourages collaboration, team building and leadership, as we collectively take steps to find a cure.
