Surf for CF
September 9, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm
Come join the CFF San Diego Team for our SECOND ANNUAL Surf for CF Event!
In recent years, doctors in Australia realized that cystic fibrosis (CF) patients who surfed had significantly healthier lungs than non-surfing CF patients. They found that the inhalation of saltwater mist hydrates the lining of the lungs and actually assists in the elimination of bacteria-laden mucus. As a result of this discovery, a hypertonic saline solution was developed to mimic a “surf session” for CF patients to use on a daily basis.
- There is a maximum of 4 surfers to compete per team. Each surfer must pay a $25 registration fee and commit to a fundraising minimum of $100.
- There is no limit to the amount of “virtual surfers” per team. These are team mates who want to show support through fundraising efforts for the team. There is no registration fee and no fundraising minimum for virtual surfers.
