CFRI’s Virtual Gala: A Breath of Fresh Air

On Saturday, October 16, 2021 we celebrated CFRI’s 46 years of advancing CF research! Together, we enjoyed music, inspirational stories, celebrity appearances and an exciting virtual auction as we honored our 2021 CF Champion, the phenomenal Jennifer Taylor-Cousar, MD, MSCS. Thank you to all the caring supporters who made this wonderful event possible — more than $133,000 was raised to support CF research and programs!

Special thanks to our event sponsors Vertex Pharmaceuticals, AbbVie, Genentech, Chiesi USA, Viatris, and NBC Bay Area.

Join us for A Breath of Fresh Air in 2022 to support research, education and support programs. Stay tuned for details!
