Cystic Fibrosis (CF) affects approximately 30,000 children and adults in the United States, according to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The disease occurs in one out of every 3,500 children born in the U.S. Common symptoms include chronic cough, recurrent lung infections leading to decreased pulmonary function, digestive problems due to insufficient pancreatic enzymes, elevated chloride levels in sweat, and poor growth.
The Mauli Ola Foundation began as a group of surfers who banded together to introduce surfing as a natural treatment to people with cystic fibrosis and other genetic conditions. Since 2007, Mauli Ola has taken nearly 3,000 CF patients surfing at nearly 200 Surf Experience Days and has now expanded its reach with hospital visits and other activities that touch the lives of kids with cancer and a variety of other health challenges. In 2010, MOF was awarded The Agent of Change Award by SURFER Magazine for its positive contributions and example to the surfing community.
