The 24-Hour Talking Cure

Event Overview

The 24 Hour Talking Cure

On March 7, 2009, and will team up with to present a 24-hour live interactive Internet Radio show to help raise money and bring awareness to Cystic Fibrosis. "This is an opportunity for baseball fans and fantasy baseball owners to team up and show support for Cystic Fibrosis," said Paul Greco, co-owner of Gotham Sports Media and Vice President of Business Operations for "We are extremely excited to be a part of this first of its kind charity radio show produced exclusively over the Internet." The 24-hour show will feature guests from the baseball Hall of Fame, current and past major league players, as well as radio and television personalities from around the country.

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.
