To do so, I have committed to play 108 holes of golf in 48 hours (6 rounds over 2 days), and am asking for both individual and business sponsorships to support this effort. Businesses can sponsor by pledging $10 for every par and $25 for every birdie I make, or by making a flat donation. Individuals may also sponsor the golf rounds or make individual donations on this page.
A big thank you to those who have already supported this effort, including Pinnacle Lawn Service, Woods Oviatt Gilman LLP, Spencerport Hots, Baker Mechanical Systems, and Twin Hills Golf Course, who has graciously donated the tee times.
The marathon golf event will take place on September 9 and 10, rain or shine, but donations may be made for several weeks following the event.
Nearly 40,000 people in the United States have cystic fibrosis: a progressive, genetic disease that affects the lungs, pancreas, and other organs. 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 over 50. Working alongside the CF community, the CF Foundation has fostered the development of more than a dozen CF treatments and helped add decades of life for people with CF. Yet, many people with CF do not benefit from existing therapies. Our vision is a cure for every person with cystic fibrosis – a life free from the burden of this disease – and we will not leave anyone behind.
