Are you ready to walk for a cure? In cities all across the country, people are taking steps to cure cystic fibrosis in the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s annual Great Strides walks. In Northeast Florida, five Great Strides walks are scheduled to take place in April and May in areas such as Clay County, Atlantic Beach, St. Augustine, Downtown Jacksonville, and Fernandina Beach. The Northeast Florida goal for Great Strides is to raise more than $305,000.
