Ride for the Breath of Life

 

CFcan bil rgb TM

Every year, riders from all backgrounds rev up their engines in support of cystic fibrosis research and patient care. The Ride for the Breath of Life is a motorcycle ride that takes place between May and October at various locations across Canada. Since its inauguration in 1985, the Ride for the Breath of Life has achieved enormous success, raising over $500,000 in life-changing funding for Canadians with cystic fibrosis.

Cystic fibrosis is the most common, fatal genetic disease affecting young Canadians. There is no cure. A defective gene and its protein product cause people living with cystic fibrosis to produce unusually thick, sticky mucus that clogs the lungs and leads to life-threatening infections. This mucus also obstructs the pancreas and stops natural enzymes from helping the body break down and absorb food.

Cystic Fibrosis Canada is one of the top three charitable organizations in the world committed to finding a cure or effective control for cystic fibrosis. Established in 1960, Cystic Fibrosis Canada is an internationally recognized leader in the fight against this devastating disease.
