Hello! My name is Max. I am a business director at a local cybersecurity company named DataSure24, and am an active leader in the Buffalo community.
Thank you for visiting my page. I am proud to type that 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 raise money to help the Foundation realize its mission of controlling and curing cystic fibrosis (CF). This is a great cause that friends of mine have been personally affected by, and is something I am thoroughly committed to helping out fundraising and in raising awareness. In fact, I am planning an event in mid-August in which I will hike and summit 6 Adirondack peaks in 2 days (Giant, Rocky Ridge, Gothics, Upper Wolfjaw, Lower Wolfjaw, Saddleback). I will be taking some V-logs of the experience and hope for it to raise some awareness and funds for the CF Foundation.
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. It is so appreciated.
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. Any amount you can donate will be 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 so much for supporting the mission of the CF Foundation!

On the way up to Algonquin.
Up on top of RPR shortly before summitting Giant Mountain.
This past weekend we hiked 5 Adirondack peaks - Giant, RPR, Wright, Algonquin, and Iroquois. The views from the top were certainly worth the hike, and glad that we could raise some funds and awareness for a great cause. THANK YOU to all that have donated so far. I'm incredibly proud of how we all came together so quickly to get to $2,000, which is a great figure. I don't want this to be the end though, and will be planning more hikes in the future to raise more funds for the CF Foundation and #ClimbingForACure. Thanks again!! - Max
