Flight4CF started in 2004 by Rich Little, after the birth of his daughter Piper, who was diagnosed with CF.
A year later, Rich incorporated Flight4CF as a nonprofit organization.
Shortly after Flight4CF became a nonprofit, the first event for the organization was held in 2005 with airplane rides generating over $25,000.
Where Does the Money Raised Go?
Money raised by Flight4CF goes to aid in the research for a cure for cystic fibrosis.
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) is the vehicle for the research.
CFF was established in 1955 to assure the development of the means to cure and control cystic fibrosis.
The Foundation is the leading organization in the United States devoted to cystic fibrosis.
