Stay tuned for details about this year’s event!


CFRI’s A BREATH OF FRESH AIR – A GALA TO RAISE CYSTIC FIBROSIS AWARENESS AND SUPPORT THE SEARCH FOR A CF CURE. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT! In October 2020, CFRI’s first virtual gala to celebrate research progress and our 45th anniversary was a tremendous success! Thanks to our caring community, we raised over $125,000. The inspirational evening featured diverse voices from our community, music, and the presentation of the 2020 CF Champion Award to the amazing Mary Helmers, RN.
