From the Executive Director

Dear Friends,

This year began with some apprehension as to how we would recreate the great financial results we experienced in 2012. Early in the year we were hit by “Super Storm Sandy” and the devastation of her wrath.  Although our thoughts and efforts were aimed towards helping all of our families affected by the storm, we maintained our focus, thereby, allowing us to deliver our promise of raising much needed funds for CF research.  

I am thrilled to announce that with the commitment of our volunteers, generous donors and staff, we will once again end the year on the upswing!  Great Strides continues to be our signature event, raising nearly 2.7 million dollars.  Recently, we celebrated our 10th Annual Breath of Life Gala honoring Tom Grotta and Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation, as well as recognized all past honorees at this special decennial celebration.   

As we begin strategizing for 2014, I ask that you all consider how you can make a difference by supporting one of our fundraising events this coming year. 

As always, we are committed to achieving our shared goals and with your help we look forward to once again celebrating great success in 2014.  

I wish you all a happy and productive New Year!


Martine Denis
Executive Director
