We Won’t Stop Until CF Stands for Cure Found
While we will not be together in person, we can be together in spirit and participate virtually - showing the strength of our community and passion to find a cure for all people living with cystic fibrosis.
You are invited to be part of the 65 Roses Challenge, a fundraising effort that will help us get one step closer to realizing our dream of finding a cure for all people living with CF, while staying the course during a time of uncertainty.
The CF Foundation aims to raise a total of $65 million by the end of 2020. With you by our side, we are confident we will reach our 65 Roses Challenge goal. Please join us!
