Gross Polowy hosted an event to help Strike Out Cystic Fibrosis! Cystic fibrosis is a life-threatening, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and progressively limits the ability to breathe.
- In the United States about 30,000 people are living with cystic fibrosis (70,000 worldwide).
- Approximately 1,000 new cases of CF are diagnosed each year.
- More than 75 percent of people with CF are diagnosed by age 2.
- Nearly half of the CF population is age 18 or older.
We had a great turnout for this event that happened on August 19th. We were able to raise $1361 towards this cause.
I’d like to thank the following organizations that donated to this event, such as the Buffalo Bisons, Cats Like Us, Rochester Americans, LA Fitness, Applebee’s, Anderson’s, Exit 2 Restaurant and SkyZone. Of course to Manor Lanes for hosting us!
