Event Location and Date
Cousins Paintball Manchester, NJ
Saturday July 23rd
hey, nation hows everyone doing, im here to let you all know im planing on setting a paintball event fundraiser to raise money to go towards finding a cure for cystic fibrosis the event i'm planing to have is in the NY/NJ area within the next two months (exact date will be released soon in this forum as well as our facebook page). the reason i am setting up an event like this is because my 1 year old niece was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at 3 months old amongst other issues and she has been suffering since day one of her life. and growing as i did with a similar background of being put through hell having an incurable disease and going through numerous procedures of "test to see if this works" type of stuff. i know what she is going through, as i myself do not have cystic fibrosis so i don't know the exact extent of her suffering, i know that feeling of the pain from the tests, iv's, medications, treatments, etc.... and i don't want to see anyone go through this especially my 1 year old niece. she's in and out of the hospital 3 times a week seeing 8 different specialists including having to go every 3 weeks for an iv treatment that lasts 4-6hours. and i know its not fun because i've been there. so im looking to set up this event to help find a cure for everyone who is suffering with this life threatening genetic disease. i'm currently working closely with the CFF (Cystic Fibrosis Foundation) and even working with separate chapters of the CFF including the NY chapter and the OH chapter (where my sister and niece are from) to make sure the money raised at this event will go to the correct people to get this cure found, and they are supporting me fully to see this event through because of how great of an idea it is. i am currently working with Animal Customs to get some support CF gear made as well as working with Undertakers Paintball to get this event going in the right direction. so if your interested in helping with this event by being there to support it, assist in sponsoring the event/cause by donating merchandise to be raffled off, or money to help purchases/create certain "support CF" merchandise to be sold at the event and online such as stickers, headbands etc.. or even if you just have some ideas to make this event great please feel free to email me at CJokerproductions@gmail.com
or contact me at our Facebook page (see link below) i will be happy to take any help i can get for this event since the beginning i've been doing this all alone until i got some support from animal customs and the undertakers. the event i am planing on having a free play day of woodsball / speedball to support CF where we will have a raffle for gear from our sponsors, we will also be selling support jerseys and more items to be determined and the proceeds will go towards finding a cure for this disease. i'm planing on having media coverage from this event from the local news (promised by the CFF). also im looking to get some sort of video made of the event and pictures taken to make a dvd to be sold to commemorate this great event and all proceeds of the dvd will go to finding a cure for CF. so if there are any of you paintball photographers, videographers please get into contact with me if you are interested in offering your support to film this event.
you may ask yourself, What is Cystic Fibrosis?
Cystic fibrosis is a life-threatening genetic disease that causes mucus to build up and clog some of the organs in the body, particularly the lungs and pancreas. When mucus clogs the lungs, it can make breathing very difficult. The thick mucus also causes bacteria (or germs) to get stuck in the airways, which causes inflammation (or swelling) and infections that lead to lung damage.
Mucus also can block the digestive tract and pancreas. The mucus stops digestive enzymes from getting to the intestines. The body needs these enzymes to break down food, which provides important nutrients to help people grow and stay healthy. People with cystic fibrosis often need to replace these enzymes with medicine they take with their meals and snacks, which helps them digest food and get proper nutrition.
