A “Great Strides” walk will take place in Franklin, with a kickoff party and information session at 6 p.m., Feb. 3, at the Fun Factory.
The walk is part of a national effort that generates funding to support lifesaving cystic fibrosis research, education and care. Great Strides Franklin is the foundation’s third-fundraising walk in Western North Carolina. The kick-off party is open to all those interested in getting more information about starting a team for Great Strides.
The walk itself is scheduled for Friday, May 4, at the Big Bear Shelter on the Little Tennessee River Greenway.
