Lift. Tone. Burn. Cure Cystic Fibrosis!


Grab your best friends and join us for a fun morning surrounded by others passionate about making a difference in the lives of those battling cystic fibrosis.

We always say Pure Barre is more then exercise- it is community.  It is cheering friends on and being helped/helping others. We now come together to rally around our instructor, Jamie, her family and more specifically her 3 year old daughter Desi who has cystic fibrosis. 

||  Looking at Desi, she looks like every other toddler, you would never know that her organs struggle to operate.  ||

Cystic Fibrosis is a life shortening genetic disease that impacts every organ but hits the lungs and digestive system the hardest. Cystic fibrosis will progressively make it difficult for her to breathe

For Desi, cystic fibrosis impacts every hour of every day. When healthy, she completes 1 hour of breathing treatments, 1 hour of airway clearance treatments, takes over 16 pills, 8 medications/supplements, must eat a high calorie diet, must stay 6 feet apart from another CF patient and also exercises, all to try and stave off the impact of cystic fibrosis. When she is sick (even just a cold) much of that routine is doubled. 

|| Our goal is that Desi have more chances to playing outside (and be a kid!) rather then having to sit for medical treatments or worry about hospitalizations. ||

Where ALL of our donations, and prayers, go to

Our hope is that this event will help the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation forward their mission to find a cure for all people with cystic fibrosis. 

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has fueled dramatic improvements in cystic fibrosis research and care. Because of the Foundation, people with CF are living longer and healthier lives.  The outlook for people with CF continues to improve year after year because of events like ours.

60 years ago a diagnosis of cystic fibrosis meant that the child wouldn’t live long enough to attend kindergarten. Today, the median life expectancy is in the 40’s, however, that is not guaranteed for Desi AND it is not enough!
