Real-time resources empowering people with cystic fibrosis


We are excited to announce that Miles for Cystic Fibrosis and the Cystic Fibrosis Lifestyle Foundation have become BreatheStrong CF, an organization dedicated to supporting the active lifestyles and overall wellness of individuals with CF. 

We believe that our new name, BreatheStrong CF, represents hope and resilience and aligns with the core values of each organization – dedicated to empowering active lifestyles and providing health and wellness education for those with CF. It builds on the familiar name of our BreatheStrong exercise grant program and our BreatheStrong+ virtual wellness program. 

We continue to impact the lives of people with CF every day by providing direct assistance for exercise and sports activities, classes, equipment, and other critical needs. We invite you to explore our website and join us in transforming lives through our impactful programs and activities.

With your help, BreatheStrong CF has funded more than $2,500,000 in exercise grants, emergency financial assistance and research support.

Staying Active with CF

“We can’t thank BreatheStrong CF enough for their efforts so our CFers are able to stay active. Because of them, our Kaisley cheered for her football team this year and has also played basketball and softball.

We want to express our sincere thanks to all who are involved with this organization and to all those who support its mission.”

Thank you for helping me to get back in the gym and feeling better! I would not have been able to do it without your financial support."


– Laura, Exercise Grant Recipient

I live on social security income exclusively because I am 66 with a late diagnosis of atypical CF. Without this grant, I would hesitate to sign up for yoga classes because my funds are limited. These classes have increased my core body strength, which can easily save my life as an older senior living alone.


– Brenda, Exercise Grant Recipient

I want to say thank you for giving me a grant for my sports. I really like cheer and softball and I want to keep playing. I love sports and it helps my CF a lot.
