100% of proceeds from KnockOut CF will help the CFLF fund CF Recreation Grants to provide gym memberships, skiing/snowboarding lessons, horseback riding, gymnastics, and many other activities, to people living with CF as fun, empowering ways to improve their health and quality of life through physical activity.
To date, over 1,000 people with CF have been helped with CFLF Recreation Grants, totaling over $500,000 in direct assistance.
Maintaining an active lifestyle is one of the best ways for people living with CF to not only maintain, but also improve their health; it can be the difference between life and death. The problem for many is that the cost of an activity can be a barrier. That is where the CF Recreation Grants provided by CFLF can make a huge difference to someone "Living Stronger, Living Longer!"
The CFLF Founder and Director, BRIAN CALLANAN was diagnosed at birth with CF and was not expected to live to age 10. Now in his early 40's, and nearing the median life expectancy, Brian is healthier than ever thanks to regular hiking, biking, and swimming, leading to amazing lung scores and an impressive, ever improving projected lifespan. Help him to help others achieve the same.
CF is one of the most common life-shortening hereditary diseases. It is a progressive, degenerative disease with no known cure. Most individuals with CF die young from chronic airway infection and lung failure.
CF is most typically identified with abnormally thick and sticky mucus that clogs the airways of the lungs and pancreatic ducts responsible for carrying digestive enzymes to the stomach. There are also many known complications including CF Related Diabetes, liver and kidney compromise, osteopenia and psychosocial challenges including depression and anxiety.
People with CF are limited from interacting with one another in person due to multi-resistant bacteria that can transmit between patient lungs through the air.
CF is a unique and complicated disease that has over 1,000 different forms, but with approximately 80% of patients sharing one primary form. Recent medical advancements continue to improve the management, quality of life and lifespan for those with the disease, and the CF Recreation Grants provided by the CFLF is one approach that goes beyond the medical, helping improve quality of life beyond just the lungs.
Everybody Fights is a community of everyday fighters who fight for happiness; theirs and that of others. The Club is the place where we congregate to prepare and inspire each other to face life everyday challenges with a fighter’s attitude. When we use the word fight we are just referring to the everyday struggles and triumphs that we all experience in pursuit of happiness.
In 2015 we where named Boston of Best because our goal is to create a space for people looking for something authentic who want to increase their overall health and check in to a community were they feel a sense of belonging everyday.
