The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's Pipeline to a Cure gala
Event Phone Number: 714-938-1393
21500 Pacific Coast Highway
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's Pipeline to a Cute gala takes over the shore July 20, celebrating the positive impact of surfing on those who suffer from the life-threatening lung disease, and drawing a wave of watermen and celebs to raise funds for a cure. Mike Ness (of Social Distortion fame) and his wife, Christine, will be honored for their longtime support.
Pipeline to a Cure began as a way to encourage patients with Cystic Fibrosis to get to the beach. We know that the salty air is medically beneficial to CF patients and surfing provides the added benefit of exercise while in the salty air. Our annual surf events have helped others in the CF community learn how to surf or paddleboard, which makes them want to go to the beach more. If we can get our CF patients and their families to love the beach, hopefully they will lead healthier, longer lives.
