Pulmonary Team made Great Strides for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Event


On Saturday, April 16th, the UF Health Pulmonary, Critical Care & Sleep team came together on a beautiful day for a 5k Walk/Run at Westside Park. The event, Great Strides “Lace Up. Walk. Cure Cystic Fibrosis”, was held by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Approximately 300 people were in attendance for this great cause, with a grand total of $45,000 being raised for the event, all of which goes to research towards finding a cure for CF. Our team was able to raise over $1,700 in just four weeks!

We would like to extend a special thank you to all those who participated and donated to this cause. The success of the team would not have been possible without every single person.
