Join the Rock the Ranch, Ranch Hands team, and help us get one step closer to a cure for cystic fibrosis – a rare, genetic, life-shortening disease that makes it difficult to breathe. One of our founders, Nick Crenshaw, was diagnosed with CF as an infant in 1988, and a few of us have been Making Great Strides for years in efforts to support the cause and find a cure!
Rock the Ranch is a one day charity music festival held in Seneca, SC. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and donate all proceeds and money raised to two charities: The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (www.cff.org) and Shriners Hospital for Children (www.shrinershospitalsforchildren.org). Due to your generosity, to date, we’ve donated over $30,000 to our selected charities!
Our venue is the historic Charlie B. Ranch Arena. This beautiful family farm boasts rolling hills that forms a perfect natural amphitheater suited for the outdoor concert of your dreams! In the 1970's, Charlie B’s played host to a concert series that included: Fleetwood Mac, ZZ Top, The Marshall Tucker Band, REO Speedwagon, James Gang, Atlanta Rhythm Section, and Black Oak Arkansas to name a few!
See y’all at the Ranch!
With supporters like you by our side, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation continues to lead the way in the fight against CF, fueling extraordinary medical and scientific progress. The life expectancy of someone born with CF has doubled in the last 30 years. Despite this progress, many people with CF do not benefit from existing therapies either because their disease is too advanced or because their specific genetic mutations will not respond. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers who struggle every day in the face of this devasting disease.
We walk in Great Strides for them.
Will you join us?
Great Strides is a fun event that provides a fantastic opportunity for family, friends, students, and colleagues to come together to make a difference in the lives of people with CF.
