Exercise Equipment & Camp

Medical professional have reported that exercise is the best way for children with cystic fibrosis – who spend much of their time reacting to their disease with medication and therapy – to decrease shortness of breath, reduce muscle deterioration, and possibly add years to their lives.

Swimming is especially recommended for children with cystic fibrosis because it has been shown to be a very effective natural means of loosening mucus. Various forms of aerobic exercise also increase airflow and decrease respiratory distress.

Child Life Society purchases treadmills and other home exercise equipment, and arranges and subsidizes various professional exercise programs. A special fund was established to help children attend summer camp and enjoy all the exercise and sport that offers.

Your generous donation helps children
with cystic fibrosis strengthen their minds and bodies.
