Here are some inspirational words from prior year volunteers:

I volunteer for ShamRockin’ because it tethers me to something bigger than myself.  ShamRockin’ the event ties me to my local community; while the larger Cystic Fibrosis Foundation opens my life experience to a worldwide group of people passionate in their quest for a cure. In my role, I get to talk with families, volunteers, sponsors and supporters regularly. Every day that I have the opportunity to work on ShamRockin’ feeds my soul with inspiration and more than a little magic.
– Lara Dolan, 2017 ShamRockin’ Sponsor Committee Chair

With no familial tie to the disease, I found a home here with Kindred Spirits that fight like the hardest driving angel warriors from heaven.  We never give up – we fight to the end- we give them hope
– Tom Murphy, Multi-Year ShamRockin’ Volunteer, 2017 Event Chair

I volunteer for 3 reasons. 1) I truly love my Sham Fam 2) It gives me a sense of purpose 3) We will kick CF’s butt. “It’s Gonna Happen!”
– Jimmy Pomerance, Multi-Year Volunteer, 2016 Emcee

    The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has unrestricted financial reserves of about 12 times its budgeted annual expenses, following a one-time royalty sale in 2014. These funds, along with the public’s continuing support, are needed to help accelerate our efforts to pursue a lifelong cure for this fatal disease, develop lifesaving new therapies and help all people with CF live full, productive lives. To request a copy of our Strategic Plan, email or call 800 FIGHT-CF.

    Important Note on Attendance at Foundation Events: To reduce the risk of getting and spreading germs at CF Foundation-sponsored events, we ask that everyone follow basic best practices by regularly cleaning your hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel, covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your inner elbow and maintaining a safe 6-foot distance from anyone with a cold or infection. Medical evidence shows that germs may spread among people with CF through direct and indirect contact as well as through droplets that travel short distances when a person coughs or sneezes. These germs can lead to worsening symptoms and speed decline in lung function. To further help reduce the risk of cross-infection, the Foundation’s attendance policy recommends that all people with CF maintain a safe 6-foot distance from each other at all times while attending an outdoor Foundation-sponsored event.
