PRLog - Feb. 12, 2014 - DEVON, Pa. -- The First Annual Bowling for Breath Charity Event, hosted by the Take A Breather Foundation took place this past Saturday evening in Devon PA. More than 200 people came and filled the 24 lanes, to support the Foundation's mission of funding Wishes for children living with cystic fibrosis (CF).

In addition to bowling, cocktails, dinner and a silent auction, the evening included remarks from Matt McCloskey, who spoke about living with cystic fibrosis for the past 45 years. "When I was born in 1968, the doctor told my parents that I was unlikely to live past grade school". Considering the bleak outlook I was given, I can say, I've lived a pretty great life" McCloskey said.

Matt McCloskey founded the TAB organization along with family and friends in 2012. The organization has granted over 100 Wishes  and continues to reach out and touch those in the CF community.

The event raised over $30,000 which will provide a respite in the form of a wish for children who have been touched by Cystic Fibrosis. The 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.
