National walk to come to DeKalb

By Northern Star Staff

Great Strides, a national walk that generates funds to fight cystic fibrosis, will be in DeKalb 8:30 a.m. Saturday at Hopkins Park, 1403 Sycamore Road.

Great Strides, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s largest national fundraiser, unites families, corporations, cystic fibrosis care centers, student groups and other dedicated people with the common goal of finding a cure for cystic fibrosis.

Funds raised through Great Strides have helped spur progress in the lives of those who have cystic fibrosis. The 2014 national goal of Great Strides is to raise $43 million nationwide for CF research, education and care.
