I've had several people ask me some specific and general questions about Great Strides. As always you can learn a lot more a lot faster by doing your own research (Click Here), but here is some info off the top of my head.
> If there is not a walk near you, you can Contact CFF and offer to help organize a walk for your community. This is what Tricia and I did a few years ago...I'll tell you more about that story later today.
> If you're planning on attending a walk, I highly recommend that you pre-register online. This will help CFF know that you're coming, and it will give you access to a lot of helpful info and resources if you're wanting to raise money and involve others.
> Most "walks" are only a few miles or even less (and, you don't even have to walk if you come). Great Strides is different than some other big name fundraisers in that you don't ask people to donate per mile, but to simply donate any amount possible. The goal of the day (and the process) is to raise moneys and awareness about CF and to have fun doing it. All of the walks I have participated in involve a whole lot more than just the actual walking part.
> Anybody can register online, even children (although I suggest with the help of a parent). Raising funds can be as easy as sending out an email.
> If you're registering to walk, you may use our names and story and web links and even call us your "friends" on your Great Strides home page and/or t-shirts etc. if you think it will help you raise funds and awareness. You may even name your team in honor of Tricia and/or Gwyneth (a few people asked about this). Just don't be a crazy stalker person.
