Net proceeds from this event will go toward CF research, care and education programs. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is one of the most efficient organizations of its kind. Nearly 90 cents of every dollar of revenue raised is put directly toward research to find a cure. The Foundation's business model has been recognized by the National Institutes of Health and by publications such as, Forbes, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and Business Week. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is proud to receive such acknowledgements and will continue to pay big dividends in terms of medical advances.

We will not rest until we find a cure.

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.
