The Battle:



The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is proud to announce the 3rd annual Checking for CF public safety-based hockey tournament to defeat cystic fibrosis (CF).  Help us make “CF” stand for “Cure Found” by recruiting your colleagues and friends to compete to be the Checking for CF Champion. 


The Details:



Checking for CF will take place March 2nd and 3rd at the National Sports Center in Blaine, MN. The tournamanet consists of Police/Fire/EMS teams. Each team is guaranteed three games and will play a maximum of 6 games. Checking for CF is a pledge event - a minimum of $1,500 in pledges per team is required to participate.
 
Shots on Goal: Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a life shortening, genetic disease affecting approximately 30,000 children and young adults in the U.S.  A defective gene causes the body to produce an abnormally thick, sticky substance in the lungs and digestive system that hinders the body’s ability to breathe and absorb nutrients.  Currently, there is no cure.  The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is aggressively pursuing a cure for CF by efficiently investing in cutting edge, life saving science.  Thank you for helping us make “shots on goal” to find a cure for CF on Sunday, March 3rd.  Meet you on the ice!

Thank you for helping make “CF” stand for “Cure Found”.

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.
