Run For the Roses, benefiting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Cystic fibrosis is a devastating genetic disease that affects tens of thousands of children and young adults in the United States. Research and care supported by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation are helping those with CF to live longer, healthier lives.

To reduce the risk of getting and spreading germs at CF Foundation-sponsored events, we ask that everyone follow basic best practices by regularly cleaning your hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel, covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your inner elbow and maintaining a safe 6-foot distance from anyone with a cold or infection.

 Medical evidence shows that germs may spread among people with CF through direct and indirect contact as well as through droplets that travel short distances when a person coughs or sneezes. These germs can lead to worsening symptoms and speed decline in lung function. To further help reduce the risk of cross-infection, the Foundation’s attendance policy recommends that all people with CF maintain a safe 6-foot distance from each other at all times while attending an outdoor Foundation-sponsored event.

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, has unrestricted financial reserves of about 13 times its budgeted annual expenses, following a one-time royalty sale in 2014. The sale was made possible by the Foundation’s successful venture philanthropy model, through which we have raised and invested hundreds of millions of dollars to help discover and develop breakthrough CF therapies. We have placed this revenue into an Opportunity Fund to accelerate support for innovative medical researchand important scientific advancements to one day find a lifelong cure.  But we’re not stopping there. As we pursue our ultimate goal, we must help people with the disease live longer, healthier lives today. Cystic fibrosis used to be a disease that largely affected children, but now because of hard-fought improvements in therapies and quality care, many people with CF are living into their 30s, 40s and beyond. More people with CF than ever before are grappling with the challenges of adulthood, careers and relationships, in addition to managing the significant daily burdens of living with this disease. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is working to ensure access to high quality, specialized care as well as promote individual treatments so that all people with the disease have the opportunity to lead full, productive lives. We need your support so people with CF can live better today and have more tomorrows.
