We invite you to be a part of the virtual 10th Anniversary of Pipeline to a Cure. Please join us in celebrating the history of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation while helping us accomplish all that we still need to do.
While we won’t be together in person, we can be together in spirit—showing the strength of our community and boundless determination to find a cure for all people living with CF. Our virtual events bring together thousands of community members across the country. During times of uncertainty, your dedicated support gives us confidence as we stay on course to achieve our mission.
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.
Now in its tenth year, Pipeline to a Cure has raised more than $1.2 million in net revenue to help find a cure for this inherited deadly disease. The ocean isn’t enough, and more research and treatments are needed to ensure that everyone with cystic fibrosis can live a long and healthy life. We invite you to be a part of this year’s event and join us in celebrating the connection between CF & Surfing.
