I am honored to be a 2021 Purple Tie Ball Candidate to raise funds is support of finding a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. My connection to the CF Foundation goes back to 2013 when one of my closest friend’s nephew, Noah, was born with CF. Up until that time I had no clue about this disease, but quickly learned about the challenges our CF Fighters face daily. I have helped raise money through a Walk for a Cure and the Xtreme Hike for a Cure where my buddies Chris (Noah’s Uncle), Jarod (Noah’s Dad), and I hiked 30 miles on the Appalachian Trail in one day. Since moving to Indiana back in 2017, I joined the board of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Indiana Chapter and have been humbled by the dedication of the Foundation in pursuit of a cure. The Purple Tie Ball will take place on October 9th. It is our largest event of the year and where the candidates find out who raised the most funds for the Foundation. My goal is to raise $100,000. It is not a small goal but go big or go home. All I need is 100,000 people to donate $1 and we will hit the goal. Your donation will literally give CF Fighters more tomorrows. #onedollar4moretomorrows

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!
