On Saturday, October 5th, Joshu Rutherford and his students from Old Bridge TSMMA joined together to form a team named “Soldiers for CF” and rode 30 miles to raise money to support the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF). The annual bike event, Aptalis Cycle for Life, began in Long Branch and spanned over three counties in NJ.
“Soldiers for CF” raised over $1200 to help the CFF achieve their mission—curing and controlling cystic fibrosis.
Cystic fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the United States (70,000 worldwide).
Since 1955, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has been the driving force behind the pursuit of a cure.
