The Gala is a fundraising event for the Summit Foundation for Cystic Fibrosis. Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a genetic, chronic and always fatal lung disease. Patients endure a lifetime of treatments, medications, limitations, and in the end a fore-shortened life. 50% of the Canadian CF population will reach 49.8 years of age. There is no cure and it is currently unstoppable.
All proceeds from this event support lung research at the Nicole Perkins Microbial Communities Core Labs at the University of Calgary.
