WHAM CF Golf Tournament
Dear WHAM CF Family, Friends and Supporters,
We are sad that we aren't going to gather this year for the WHAM CF 10th Annual Golf Tournament, but we are still fundraising for 2020 and will be back in 2021 with another outstanding event.
In case you didn't know, the 9th Annual WHAM CF golf tournament was a fantastic success... we raised
$35,871!!! The organizers want to thank the volunteers and golfers who make this event so special each year!
Despite the fact that we aren't physically meeting, we are still raising money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Just after the tournament last year a new CF medication, Trikafta, was released to CF patients. It is a life-changing medication that restores lung function, decreases hospitalizations and enables people with CF to discontinue some of their daily medications. All of those are a win for people with CF who often take over 15+ different types of medications each day. It shows that our fundraising efforts over the years have been effective! Some downsides with this life altering medication are it isn't a cure and it doesn't help about 10% of people with CF. Our WHAM CF team, as well as the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is not going to leave this population behind! One of the families that volunteers with our tournament, Jase's Pride, has a sweet boy who is one of these people for whom Trikafta doesn't help. We continue to raise money to help him!
Thank you in advance for your donation!
In a way to keep the momentum going we would love for you to take a picture of you playing golf in your ORANGE outfit (or just hanging out in orange) on our Facebook page. If you donate something you be recognized by our team with a special something. This is our facebook link... https://www.facebook.com/WHAM-CF-120944091249317

P.S. We thought you be interested to know that the basic research funded by the CF Foundation over the past 50 years has already helped COVID-19 researchers to better understand how the lungs fight viral attacks and how to address lung inflammation. A CF medicine, Pulmozyme, is even being tested in COVID patients. Donations from people like you have helped all to bring about these positive outcomes.
