                                           What Is Cystic Fibrosis?

•   It is a life-threatening genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive systems of tens of thousands of
    young people.
•   One in 31 Americans (or more than 10 million people) is a symptomless carrier of the defective cystic fibrosis
    gene.
•   Each time two carriers conceive, there is a 25 percent chance that they will have a child with cystic fibrosis.

                               Partner With A Results-Driven Organization…
                                      the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
    Since 1955, the mission of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is to assure the development of the means to cure
    and control cystic fibrosis (CF) and to improve the quality of life for those with the disease. The Cystic Fibrosis
    Foundation tirelessly pursues its mission by supporting scientific research, which is dedicated to the discovery
    and development of new therapies. At the same time, it funds and accredits a network of specialized treatment
    centers that provide state-of the-art care for people with the disease. By applying the same principles that a
    “for-profit company” follows—efficiency, innovation, and a results-driven approach—the Foundation is making a
    profound difference in the lives of those with CF

                                 The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Is Efficient
    The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation spends approximately 90 cents of every dollar raised on program services,
    which includes cystic fibrosis research and care. SmartMoney has recognized the Foundation as “a charity that
    won’t waste your money.”

                                The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Is Innovative
    Forbes and USA Today have recognized the Foundation for its innovative approach to curing a disease. By
    offering milestone-driven research awards, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation stimulates the development of new
    CF therapies that are having a profound impact on thousands of young lives.

                             The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Is Results-Driven
    When the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation began, few children lived to attend elementary school. Today, thanks to
    the research and care supported by the Foundation, the median age of survival for a person with cystic fibrosis
    is now almost 37 years.

                            The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Needs Your Help!
    Although the outlook for a child born with CF today has improved tremendously over the years, it is not good
    enough. Your partnership with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is critical to ensuring that the momentum in
    research continues. Working together, we can add tomorrows every day to the lives of all people with CF.

                                  Golden Isles Red*Trout Celebrity Classic
    History of the Tournament: In 1988, with the help of friends and baseball legend Ted Williams, Gary Ellis
    founded the now famous Redbone Celebrity Tournament Series to help the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation fund
    research needed to find a cure for cystic fibrosis (CF). Over the last 20 years, the Redbone has developed into
    a high profile event raising over 20 million dollars in the fight against cystic fibrosis. Rich Products Corporation
    Golden Isles Red*Trout Celebrity Classic is a two-day catch and release tournament for redfish and trout in the
    shallow waters off the coast of St. Simons Island in Georgia. Teams are made up of an angler and celebrity or
    two anglers, guided as a team by local professional fishing captains. The event also features two social events
    on Thursday and Saturday evenings. Not only do the tournament participants enjoy good food, fishing and fun –
    they are a part of the camaraderie and competition of the special “fraternity” of anglers, guides, and celebrities
    who are helping to “Catch the Cure” for cystic fibrosis.
                                      Adding Tomorrows Every Day
By making smart investments in research, partnering with sound pharmaceutical developers, and building
relationships with local supporters, the CF Foundation continues “adding tomorrows every day.”

Without continued financial support, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation cannot fund the research and the development
pipeline slows dramatically. With a cure inevitably on the horizon, you can be a part of the groundbreaking research
that makes this possible.

While speaking about the fight to find a cure for CF, Jack Williams (former CEO of Royal Caribbean Cruise Line)
said, “You won’t cure this disease by raising money; you’ll cure this disease by winning hearts.”
