Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Awards Grants to Eight Community Programs

A $10,000 grant was awarded to The Cody Dieruf Benefit Foundation for its program We Walk Together Mothers Retreat.  A retreat for mothers of Cystic Fibrosis children. We are touched and honored by this CFF Impact grant award.  CDBF feels it is an important aspect of their foundation.  A way that we can continue to honor Cody Dieruf and all the mothers of cystic fibrosis children.  Our 2nd annual event was truly inspiring, emotional and brought a sense of freedom as the  mothers poured out their hearts regarding life with this disease of cystic fibrosis.  CFF Impact Award was our title sponsor for this event. We are grateful to know that CFF believes in our cause, and we will continue to strive to make this event an available each year to mothers.

 

The Cody Dieruf Benefit Foundation offers a three-day We Walk Together Mother’s Retreat for the mothers of children with CF, providing them with valuable education, self-care, and mutual support. The retreat aims to improve the wellbeing of mothers and in turn, improve the health and happiness of their entire families.
