Our owner and founder of AAGI, Suzanne, has a son that has been diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. Suzanne and her husband were both CF carriers and their son Lloyd only had a 1 in 4 chance of getting the disease. Lloyd spent the first few years of his life in the hospital undergoing treatment to manage the life-threatening illnesses that Cystic Fibrosis can cause.
Although Cystic Fibrosis can cause lifelong difficulty and shortened life-span, the CF Foundation has been able to conduct research on the disease and have been able to create medications that can potentially help those with Cystic Fibrosis. Because of the CF Foundation, Lloyd's disease has been managed and he's been able to experience life the same way that many of us are able to.
65 Roses Classic, is a gymnastics competition we host each year in honor of those who have been affected by Cystic Fibrosis and to raise awareness for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Proceeds from the competition are donated directly to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Last year we were blessed to be able to donate $6,000 total from our competition and online donations!
Join us on our mission by donating to our Cystic Fibrosis Donation Page! We are committed to helping find a cure for cystic fibrosis and am raising funds to support the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Annual Fund. Contributions to the Annual Fund provide important, unrestricted resources that help develop new treatments and pursue every opportunity for promising research that can lead to a cure. Please consider making a gift today. Your support will help make a difference for all those with CF and their families. Thank you!
