MISSION STATEMENT

The Living Breath Foundation is a non-profit organization created to help those living with Cystic Fibrosis.

We award scholarships for qualifying individuals who wish to further their education beyond the high school level. We also assist individuals and families with the added expenses associated with having Cystic Fibrosis, which include the extensive costs of prescription medication and medical equipment. In certain situations we provide financial assistance for individuals who have prolonged or frequent absence from work.

In addition to providing financial assistance, The Living Breath Foundations plans on producing new and inventive ways to raise awareness about the disease and what it takes to live with the illness.

AIR CRAFT YOUTH FOOTBALL CAMP

Southern California Youth Football Camp run by The Living Breath Foundation

In 2010 The Living Breath Foundation teamed up with current Riverside Community College football head coach Tom Craft to put on the Air Craft Passing Camp.  The camp provided over 100 youth football players with a three day long football experience. The players learned football skills as well as invaluable life lessons from a team of exceptional coaches.  Due to logistics the camp was only held in 2010 but was considered a great success by the Living Breath Foundation.  The wonderful experience we received from the players and coaches lead us to begin putting on The Living Breath Foundation Bowl (a Junior College Bowl Game) the following year.​
