Western Pennsylvania Chapter


Volunteers are the key to our success, and we encourage you to get involved! Whether you join a committee and help get sponsors for an event, recruit companies to put together walk teams or volunteer time in our office, you help us achieve our mission—curing and controlling cystic fibrosis. Take a moment to see what a difference you can make by supporting events throughout the year.  Together, we can continue adding tomorrows every day to the lives of people with CF.


"Join our Team" as a volunteer and make CF stand for "cure found".
