HHP Sponsors: Great Strides 2012 - Cystic Fibrosis Walk.

The annual "Great Strides - Taking Steps to Cure Cystic Fibrosis" walk was held on Saturday May 19th 2012 at the UH main campus. Sponsored by the Department of Health and Human Performance, thousands of people walked through the lovely UH campus while helping to raise a record $900,000 that will be used to find cures to cystic fibrosis, an inherited, chronic lung and digestive system disease that affects nearly 30,000 children and adults.
