Pipeline to a Cure

PIPELINE TO A CURE
SATURDAY, AUGUST 3, 2019 AT 6 PM
12 years ago, Pipeline to a Cure was created to herald a discovery by Australian researchers, who found that children with cystic fibrosis who surfed had significantly healthier lungs. Anyone who has ever surfed or swam in the ocean can tell you about the positive effects the calming ocean can have. It can make us feel soulful and put our lives into perspective. Years ago, it was discovered that it can also help those with cystic fibrosis. Australian researchers found kids with CF who surfed and were exposed to the salt water had healthier lungs than those who didn’t. Soon, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation helped develop a hypertonic saline treatment that allows CF patients around the world to capture the benefits of the ocean.

The 8th annual Pipeline to a Cure gala will take place at Country Club at Landfall at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 3, 2019. Be our guest and celebrate the amazing relationship between the surfing and the CF community. Enjoy a silent and live auction, a gourmet dinner, special musical guests Jack Jack 180 and more. Welcome to Wilmington’s premier party of the year!
