In the season and the spirit of giving, I want to introduce you to Emily Schaller and Rock CF. Emily has Cystic Fibrosis and uses Rock CF to raise money for others who have Cystic Fibrosis. Her website states their mission clearly:
"The Rock CF Foundation Is A 501(C)3 Nonprofit Corporation. Founded And Led By Emily Schaller, The Rock CF Foundation Is Dedicated To Increasing The Quality Of Life For People With Cystic Fibrosis. With The Help Of A Core Group Of Volunteers, The Foundation Utilizes The Arts, Entertainment, Fashion And Fitness To Support Research Initiatives And Heighten Public Awareness In The Fight Against Cystic Fibrosis."
One way that they raise money is by selling merchandise via their online store, http://rockcf.storenvy.com/. Proceeds from sales go to supporting those with Cystic Fibrosis. Emily Rocks CF by living her truth, running marathons, taking long-distance bike rides, and organizing healthy events around the city. The reason I'm highlighting the work of Rock CF is because she contributes to healthier community and healthier world.
Thanks for reading a bit about Emily and what she does with Rock CF!
