The Take a Breather Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization founded in 2012 by Matt McCloskey, who has lived with the genetic disease, cystic fibrosis for 45 years. It is an outgrowth of the Narberth CF Run which has been fulfilling wishes for children since 1996, when it granted it's first wish and sent a child to Disney World.
Our mission is to provide a respite in the form of a wish for children who have been touched by Cystic Fibrosis. Our goal is to allow these children, along with their families, to "take a breather" from CF and focus on creating lasting memories that will stay with them for a lifetime. Memories that will strengthen their hearts and minds as they battle the psychological, emotional and economic turmoil that accompanies life with Cystic Fibrosis.
The Take a Breather Foundation has raised thousands of dollars to fund wishes for children living with cystic fibrosis. Their aim is not to only fund wishes but help spread awareness and education about the disease; and positively impact the lives of cystic fibrosis patients and their families.
