Sending love and great big bear hug to you! This Valentine’s Day, we seek to raise $2,000 through our CFRI Love Heals campaign, to help those with cystic fibrosis (CF), a life threatening genetic disease that that primarily affects the respiratory, digestive and reproductive systems and progressively limits the ability to breathe.
While we hope to reach our goal by Valentine’s Day, we are running this campaign though February 28th. The Love Heals campaign hopes to raise $2,000 to support CFRI’s (Cystic Fibrosis Research Incorporated's) 2018 CF Summer Retreat, which will be held at Vallombrosa Center in Menlo Park, CA August 16th through August 21st. Adults (18 years and older) with CF, as well as their family members, friends, and health care providers are invited to participate in the retreat, which provides a safe and welcoming environment aimed at enhancing positive coping skills, social support and education for people who share common experiences with cystic fibrosis. All people with CF are required to adhere to CFRI's Cross Infection Control Policy.
All donations will be applied directly to the cost of putting on this year’s retreat, with the theme “Take Back the Future: A CF Odyssey.” Activities promoting health include daily exercise, arts and crafts, rap sessions, and educational workshops with guest speakers, as well as fun group bonding activities such as a talent show, movie night and themed costume days.
CFRI is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that funds research, provides educational and personal support, and spreads awareness of cystic fibrosis (CF), a life threatening genetic disease (www.cfri.org.). CFRI received 4 stars from Charity Navigator and is recognized as a top-rated charity by Great Nonprofits.
Any donation large or small would be greatly appreciated. We thank you for your consideration and wish you love, health and happiness this Valentine’s Day.
