This year marked the third year that we've been apart of the annual Wine & Roses Gala benefiting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. And it's amazing that we still manage to learn something new every year. Last year, we has the please of meeting 10 year old CF Ambassador, Elena, who is the director of Rosebuds - a charity of young runners that has worked to raise awareness and money to support local CF families and for CF research. So far, the Rosebuds have raised over $45,000 for CF charities!
This year, we learned the story behind CF tradition 65Roses. In 1965, a little boy with cystic fibrosis couldn’t pronounce the name of his illness. In his four year old world he had something he called “65 roses.” Since then, his simple mispronunciation has come to stand for much more than a large bouquet of flowers. And over the years, the Cystic Fibrosis community has adopted the phrase. Held annually at the Atlanta Athletic Club, the Wine & Roses Gala has raised over 2.5 million on behalf of CF and continues to grow each year. Check out some of the highlights from the event. And be sure to LIKE or SHARE on Facebook or Twitter!
