Event Overview

The Greater Cincinnati Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has been honored to have recognized 75 of the Cincinnati's finest young professionals over the past three years through our "Cincinnati's Finest" campaign.  These honorees have used their leadership skills to generate over $200,000 to further the mission of the CF Foundation.  Applications are reviewed by a panel of judges who decide our honorees.

We welcome you to nominate a potential Finest Candidate.  Each candidate will embark on a 17 week fundraising campaign with their efforts culminating on this fine evening. Nominations run August 1, 2012 – October 1, 2012.

Candidates must be between the ages of 25 – 40, be an up and coming professional in their organization and have the willingness to commit to raise a minimum of $2,500 throughout their 17 week fundraising campaign to support the CF Foundation research and Care Centers.

Important note on attendance for people with CF and their families:
The health and well-being of people with cystic fibrosis is our top priority. Medical evidence shows that certain bacteria can be passed between individuals who have CF and can lead to worse symptoms and speed decline in lung function. To limit the serious risk of cross-infection between people with CF, only one person with CF may be invited to attend the indoor portion of each CF Foundation-sponsored event.  For the outdoor portion of the event, people with CF should maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from each other.

Please note: People with CF and their families should be aware that individuals with CF might choose to attend Foundation events or meetings without notifying event organizers. We strongly discourage this; however, we cannot guarantee that only one person with CF will be present at any indoor Foundation event. For more information, please call your local chapter.
