Lexus of Calgary Joins the Fight to End Cystic FibrosisBlog May 24th, 2018
Did you know that most people who are diagnosed with cystic fibrosis only live until 51?
Unfortunately, there is no cure for this devastating disease. The median age for survival for cystic fibrosis is 51, while 50% of those patients die under the age of 35.
Thankfully, Cystic Fibrosis Canada is one of the world’s top three charitable organizations committed to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis. They organize the 65 Roses Ladies Golf Classic, which will be held on Monday, June 25, 2018 at the Heritage Pointe Golf Club.
Our team at Lexus of Calgary will be the title sponsor for this year’s 65 Roses Ladies Golf Classic! Read on to learn more about the event and our involvement.

Since establishment in 1960, Cystic Fibrosis Canada has invested more than $235 million in leading research, innovation, and care. As a result, Canadians with cystic fibrosis have one of the highest median survival rates in the world.
This internationally-recognized nonprofit organization invests more funding in life-saving cystic fibrosis research and care than any other non-governmental agency in Canada. Ultimately, the goal is to find a cure.
Cystic Fibrosis Canada needs the generous support of volunteers, donors, and partners to improve the lives of those living with this disease.
