The CFA Turkey Trot is the major fundraiser for the Cystic Fibrosis Association of North Dakota. Every day we are one step closer to a cure for cystic fibrosis, but until then, our friends with CF have to continue to fight to breathe.

 Prizes will be awarded for the top three runners in each age group per race. Due to the increased participation in this race, and because people are usually anxious to get back home for Thanksgiving dinner, prizes will be mailed out this year once results are finalized. For this reason, it is imperative that you provide an accurate mailing address.

Review On:
We Couldn't Do It Without You!

The Turkey Trot is an amazing event that helps CF patients get through the tough times. The event brings together thousands of people all helping an amazing organization. As a mother of a child with CF, I didn't know how much I would depend on the CFA to help our family. With recent drug changes and hospitalizations I now know the full meaning about helping CF patients and their families "Breathe Easier"!
