The CF Foundation's logo first debuted on Carl Edwards' #19 car at the Sprint All-Star Race at Charlotte Motor Speedway in North Carolina last month.

ARRIS sponsored the placement of the Foundation's logo on two of its cars in the hopes of raising awareness and increasing the national spotlight on cystic fibrosis, a cause that is close to many of the company's employees. ARRIS's President of Worldwide Sales and Marketing, Ron Coppock's daughter, Caitlin, now 24,was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at the age of 4.

“Awareness is the road to finding a cure,” Coppock said. “The more people who know about cystic fibrosis, the sooner we'll get there. NASCAR is spreading the word.”

ARRIS is a Distinguished Corporate Supporter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and is also a strong supporter of Great Strides, the Foundation's largest national fundraising event, and the Georgia Chapter's Wine & Roses Gala.
