Kenneth "King" Birnbaum is a five year old little boy who loves his dog, Spot, and playing Minecraft with his Daddy. He is a brother to Emma Virginia, grandson, nephew, cousin, neighbor, schoolmate, and friend to many. He is also living with cystic fibrosis (CF).
CF does not stop, but neither do we. Our commitment to raising money and awareness has never been stronger. We want King to have a long life, and we want that life to be full of all of the good stuff!
Through the generous donations of so many people the CF drug development pipeline continues to thrive. While there is not currently a drug to treat the root cause of King's CF, there is one in the pipeline!!! Guess what else? It looks promising!
Can you imagine handing this little boy a pill that would change his life? It's breathtaking, right? There could be no greater gift which is why we are asking you to make a donation in his honor. That's why we are asking you to invest in the drug development pipeline that holds the hopes and dreams of so many.
In the last five years, National Family Team KKB has raised nearly $200,000 with the help of team leaders across the country. Our friends and family shared the message of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and King's story. In return, their friends and family responded with overwhelming support! These leaders, their teams, and their friends have given us hope as we continue the fight against CF. In 2017, our sixth year, our goal is to raise $40,000 with the help of 6 team leaders across the country. Will you join us in Chattanooga on Saturday, May 13?
There are three ways you can join National Family team KKB.
1. Make a 100% tax deductible donation to support the cure for CF!
2. You can join our team in Chattanooga or across the country as a walker and help fundraise by clicking the Join Our Team Button above.

By becoming a member of our team and/or making a donation, you are joining a growing group of people committed to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis. On average, 90 cents of every donated dollar goes to life saving research, patient assistance, and patient care. Together, we are adding tomorrows to the lives of people living with CF by supporting the search for a cure. Money buys science and science saves lives.
