The Laps for Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is dedicated to providing support in all areas of CF treatment, care, research, and improved quality of life.
Who does your organization benefit/serve?
Laps for CF serves the population of CF patients throughout the state of Alabama as well as some of the surrounding areas. We serve this population by supporting the CF care centers at Children’s of Alabama and UAB.
What makes your organization unique?
Laps for CF is unique because we were started by Emily Schreiber, a then 9 year old CF patient who recognized a need in her own hometown. Her dedication and drive helped start Laps for CF. Since then, Laps for CF has donated over $3 million and helped elevate the CF care centers here in Birmingham from the bottom in the nation to the top 5%.
Tell us why your organization deserves to win Uptick’s Marketing Magic City Makeover Competition!
Laps for CF deserves the Uptick Marketing Magic City Makeover because we really are making a huge impact in the lives of our patients, but there is still more that can be done! We have been able to be very successful with minimal resources, and I know that with a little help we could soar into a whole new level of success. The patients as well as the community have been so supportive of Laps for CF and they also deserve to see a positive change in a Foundation that directly affects the people in their community.
