The inception of the Balasangam club took place in 2004 with less than 10 kids. The club initially served as a common ground for kids to come together to learn Indian history, culture, mythology, and the Hindi language. Soon the club began hosting annual shows to provide a recap of the materials that the students had learned in the form of skits, dances, songs, and other art forms. As the Balasangam club continued to grow, a cheerful, high spirited 7-year-old girl joined the club and we learned that she had been diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at an early age. Cystic Fibrosis was a new term for many and as we delved deeper, we came to understand that this is a life-threatening genetic disease that results in a shortened life span. There is little or no government funding for this disease and its only private organizations and individual donors that can help fund research to find a cure. That knowledge solidified our resolve to be part of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) drive and to help her as well as others like her. The participants and the founders found a deeper meaning and purpose for the shows. Since then, the Balasangam club has been hosting annual shows every year as a fundraising effort for Cystic Fibrosis. The little girl has been an inspiration of courage and hope, one who always has a smile on her face, no matter what she is going through. Our hope is to make the lives of those with Cystic Fibrosis better and we believe every little step counts! Please join us in making a difference and save children’s lives!!
