We are raising money to help find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. Katie represents over 50,000 children and adults currently living with CF in the United States alone.

All the proceeds from Katie’s Ride are sent to the Denver chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation where over 92 cents of every dollar is used for research and helping those currently living with CF. Over the past ten years, all of our participants and sponsors have helped us raise over $100,000 for this cause!

Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic disease that affects the pancreas, liver and lung functions in the body. It is the number one genetic killer of children today. A child born today has less than 50% chance of living to the young age of 36. We have made some progress. Just three years ago that age was 32, but it isn’t enough.
