Until we end this disease, our team will work tirelessly to extend and enhance life for those with cystic fibrosis by functioning as:
Research pioneers, blazing new trails in drug development;
Fund-raisers, securing the money needed to support the fight against CF;
Advocates, keeping CF a top priority in government, industry and research;
Stewards, using your donations to help fuel the creation of new drugs;
Caregivers, linking patients and families to specialized CF care; and
Helping hands, offering support, information and resources.
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a life-threatening genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive systems of approximately 30,000 children and adults in the United States. It is estimated that more than 10 million Americans are unknowing, symptomless carriers of the defective CF gene, which means they are at a greater risk for having a child with the disease.
There are many ways you can get involved with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Register a team for a Great Strides walk, raise money for your team and participate in the event. If you don't have a team, sign up as an individual walker. Volunteer at our events throughout the year- Soup Cook Off, Great Strides, Brewers Fest, Golf Outing and Gala.
