Skaters Take to Ice for Cystic Fibrosis Foundation

Courtright family of Caldwell raises $3K with second annual Skate4CF.

More than 100 people laced up their ice skates for the second annual Skate4CF, a fundraiser for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation organized by the Courtright family of Caldwell. 

The event, held Saturday at Clary Anderson Arena in Montclair, raised approximately $3,000 through admission costs, a silent auction, a bake sale and t-shirt sales.

The proceeds will be donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and the Mauli Ola Foundation, which teaches children with CF how to surf. (Salt air is a natural therapy for those afflicted with the disease.)

Greg and Jeanne Courtright have been actively involved in raising funds to find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis, which affects the lung, pancreas and liver, since two of their four children were diagnosed with the disease in 2009.

Save the Date

A CF Walk will be held at Grover Cleveland Park on Thursday, June 6, at 6 p.m. To support the Courtrights by joining the team or making a donation, visit Matthew & Mitchell's Crew team page.
