Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a life-threatening, genetic disease affecting approximately 70,000 children and adults; yet, there is no government funding for CF research. All research and progress towards finding better treatments and a cure rely on funding from events like this. The CFCS is put on by the Breathe Easy Foundation (BEF). The goal of both the CFCS and the Breathe Easy Foundation is to help raise awareness of the disease and raise funds for the great strides being made towards CF research. BEF proceeds go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
The CF Concert Series was started in 2007 as a small effort organized by local music fans with a personal interest in helping to find better treatments and a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. Rhett Miller has been a staple of the annual event, helping to raise nearly $100,000 in support of the Cystic Fibrosis cause. Other local musicians that have performed in support of CF include Sarah Jaffe, Murry Hammond, Brent Best, Ben Kweller, Doug Burr and Glen Farris.
