Where does my donation go?

One of the most common questions I get lately is "where does my money go that I donate to your walk fund--does it go to your family or to Peter?" At this time, we are fortunate enough to have good insurance and employment that pays for Peter's medication and treatment. Our fund-raising efforts go to support the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF), an amazing organization that has been the catalyst behind nearly all of the progress made in the effort to find a cure for this disease.

This video is a great explanation of the CF Foundation's mission and purpose. Its primary goal is to find a cure. It does this by:

  • Funding research into new treatments and medication! (where most of the money goes)
  • Supporting and accrediting CF care centers
  • Compiling and analyzing data from all CF care centers
  • Promoting education and public awareness of CF

Peter's life is directly impacted by the progress of the CF Foundation's efforts. Thank you so much if you have donated, pledged to walk with us, or have contributed in any way. If you haven't, please make a difference today. You will be one of the reasons Peter has a longer and fuller life. Donate or walk with us to find a cure for CF.
