The funds raised by Pittsburgh’s 50 Finest will make a difference in the lives of approximately 30,000 individuals in the United States who suffer from cystic fibrosis (CF).

CF is a genetic disease that causes the body to produce an abnormally thick, sticky mucus that clogs the lungs and digestive system, making breathing and digestion difficult and eventually impossible. The current median age of survival for those with CF is 38 years, more than double what it was 25 years ago, thanks to the phenomenal research funded by the CF Foundation.

The CF Foundation is consistently ranked as one of the nation’s “Best in the Business” for its exceptionally efficient use of fund-raising dollars by publications such as the Wall Street Journal’s SmartMoney magazine. The CF Foundation has also received the coveted four-star rating for sound fiscal management from Charity Navigator, the largest charity evaluator in the U.S., assuring contributors that donated funds are going exactly where they should.
