Rose Ostrowski is a fifteen year old tenth grader from Berwick, PA. Starting at very early age, Rose loved to sing. At eight years old, Rose’s parents thought that it would be different and neat for their daughter to record a song. What was originally just for fun grew into an ongoing project for Rose- her willingness to help find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis (CF).Rose’s first single, a cover of ‘Let it Be’, was released in 2012. Earlier that year, her cousin, Camillia, who had suffered from CF passed away. Camillia was only 21 and lost her life as a result of having the disease. From day one of Rose’s song release, Rose and her family decided to donate all of the sing proceeds to the CF Foundation. The foundation is determined to find a cure and hosts multiple fundraisers across the nation to raise money for CF research. In an effort to help raise CF awareness and of course sell her music to benefit the CF Foundation, Rose set out to perform. However, being eleven years old at the time, performing at your typical club setting was out of the question- That’s when her ‘Adding Tomorrows’ Mall Tour was born.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, indoor events sponsored by the CF Foundation are strictly prohibited at this time. Scheduled outdoor events must adhere to strict requirements to minimize the risk of COVID-19 infection. Events may be subject to change at any time based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local health officials.
IMPORTANT NOTE ON ATTENDANCE AT OUTDOOR FOUNDATION EVENTS:
To minimize the risk of COVID-19 infection, attendees at CF Foundation events must adhere to the following requirements:
Practice physical distancing and maintain at least a safe 6-foot distance from persons outside of their household at all times
Face masks strongly encouraged and expected to be worn in accordance with local guidelines. (Note, children under two years of age should not wear masks due to safety concerns and therefore should not attend CF Foundation events where there is risk of interacting with someone outside of their household.)
Follow basic infection, prevention and control practices by regularly washing hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel, covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your inner elbow.
Persons with CF should consult their physician before participation in any in-person event as they may be at an increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19. People with CF should maintain a safe 6-foot distance from persons outside of their household at all times.
