The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is the world’s leader in the search for a cure for cystic fibrosis, and nearly every CF-specific drug available today was made possible with their financial support. On June 9, 2018 Omega Auto Care will be doing our part in aiding them in future research towards that cure, by sponsoring the 1st Annual Autoplex Golf Tournament.
Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic disorder that affects over 30,000 people in the united states, and over 70,000 people worldwide, with approximately 1000 new case being diagnosed each year. Cystic Fibrosis causes a thick, sticky buildup of mucus in the lungs, pancreas, and other organs. In the lungs, the mucus clogs the airways and traps bacteria leading to infections, extensive lung damage, and eventually, respiratory failure. In the pancreas, the mucus prevents the release of digestive enzymes that allow the body to break down food and absorb vital nutrients.
The 1st annual Autoplex Golf Tournament will take place on the Bear Creek Golf Course, teeing off at 1:30pm. Not only is the tournament raising money through sponsorships, but also through a silent auction, raffles, and games. The mission of The CF Foundation reaches far beyond this golf tournament, but we are honored to be a part of the efforts towards finding a cure for this debilitating disease and restoring quality of life for those affected.
