Family and Friends,

I will soon be honored by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation at a special event recognizing outstanding young professionals in my community. In accepting this distinction, I have committed to raising money to help the Foundation realize its mission of controlling and curing cystic fibrosis (CF).

Please help me meet my fundraising goal by making a donation. Your generous gift will be used efficiently and effectively to help support vital CF research, medical and education programs. Over the last three years I have attended each of the Brewer's Balls to help support friends who have been honored. It is an incredible event that Mallory and I look forward to going to every year. At each Ball, we have supported CF by donating toward the incredible research being done to move toward a cure!

Making a donation is easy and secure! Just click the Donate button on this page to make a donation that will be credited to my fundraising efforts. Before asking you to make a donation on my behalf, I wanted to make sure that I made a donation and have done so. Please join me in donating to such a great cause and please know that any donation no matter the size is greatly appreciated.

Cystic fibrosis is a devastating genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. More than ten million Americans are symptomless carriers of the defective CF gene. Advances continue to be made in finding a cure, but your help is needed now -- more than ever -- to help keep up the momentum of this life-saving research. Sixty years ago, children with CF usually did not live long enough to attend elementary school. Today, because of Foundation-supported research and care, the median survival age of people with CF is about 40. This is remarkable progress, but not good enough. We continue to lose precious lives to CF every day. To learn more about CF and the CF Foundation, visit cff.org. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those with cystic fibrosis. Thank you for supporting the mission of the CF Foundation!

If you are interested in attending the event on June 13, 2019, there is an option for you to purchase tickets and you can choose me as the beneficiary of your ticket purchase. I hope to see you at the event in either of two forms: 1. Celebrating via Skype because myself and the Virginia Baseball team are in Omaha, NE competing for the National Championship or 2. In person to enjoy a great night of fun, friendship and laughter!
