Due to the ongoing threat of coronavirus, the PFF has decided to make its 2020 PFF Walk - Chicago virtual. The health and safety of our patient community is of utmost importance and we know that those with chronic conditions like PF are at higher risk for developing serious complications from COVID-19. 

Now more than ever, individuals with PF and their families need our support. Whether we’re together in person or connected virtually, the Virtual PFF Walk - Chicago is a special opportunity to unite our community and raise funds to fund crucial research and programs for patients, their caregivers and loved ones. 

There are many fun ways to participate in the Virtual PFF Walk - Chicago including:

Once you've decided how you plan to participate, send us your photos and videos during your activity! We'll include your content as a part of our PFF Walk - Chicago video montage on Facebook and YouTube.

Thank you for your tremendous efforts on behalf of our community. Every dollar makes a difference and your participation will help us get further faster as we push forward for a better life for everyone with PF.
