Cystic Fibrosis Foundation walk


The Northern Ohio chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation will host its 19th annual Mahoning/Trumbull Great Strides Walk next Sunday at Boardman Park’s Chester Long Pavilion.

Registration begins at 1 p.m., and the walk begins at 2. The event will include food, entertainment and a post-walk victory party with an ice-cream sundae bar provided by Handel’s.

The Great Strides Walk is the largest national event to raise funds and awareness for cystic fibrosis, a genetic disease that progressively limits the ability to breathe and ultimately causes premature death.

This year marks the 30th anniversary of Great Strides. For information or to register, call 216-901-2873 or visit, or on social media at #GreatStrides or #WhyIStride4CF.
