Women’s Soccer Volunteers at Third Annual CF Climb to Benefit Cystic Fibrosis Foundation

BABSON PARK, Mass.—The Babson College women's soccer team volunteered at the third annual CF Climb on Sunday at One International Place in Boston to benefit the Massachusetts/Rhode Island Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Head coach Nellie Pineault and assistant coach Meredith Carey, whose daughter Claire has cystic fibrosis, participated in the 46-floor climb, while the team assisted with registration, at water stations, and provided a cheering section to start and finish the race.

"The CF Climb was a great day overall," said Pineault.  "Our team added a lot of energy to the race and had a lot of fun doing so.  Their teamwork and enthusiasm to give back made me proud.  Stewie (Meredith) and I were excited to represent Babson soccer participating in the climb as it is for a good cause."

The CF Climb is held at one of Boston's tallest buildings, as participants climb up 46 floors to help fight cystic fibrosis.  Participants can form their own teams or test their endurance as individuals by racing to the top.  The fundraising minimum to participate in the climb is $200, and the average amount a participant raises is $330.  Prizes were awarded for the fastest times in several categories.

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is the world's leader in the search for a cure for cystic fibrosis.  They fund more CF research than any other organization, and nearly every CF drug available today is made possible because of Foundation support.  For more information on the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, visit cff.org.
