Every year the Connecticut Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation holds their Hartford's Finest Awards to celebrate some of the Region's best and brightest young professionals, and this year's class include quite a few HYPEsters!

Let's meet our HYPE nominees!

Adam Quagliaroli

I ask that you please help me meet my fundraising goal by making a donation. Please do not be intimidated by the set amounts under "Your Donation" as was I was the first time around! Any amount can be entered and will be greatly appreciated! Your generous gift will be used efficiently and effectively to help support vital CF research, medical and education programs. The "Tickets" section is dedicated for a special charity event toward the end of the fundraising campaign.

David Morse

I will be fundraising and contributing to the Foundation in memory of a late friend and fellow Husky, Peter James, who suffered from CF until his passing in 2007. Peter loved the Boston community he grew up in and the University of Connecticut, where he attended to pursue his undergraduate degree in Urban Studies. Peter was such a giving person to those around him and left a lasting impression on everyone he met. Although it has been a number of years since his passing, he helped forge relationships that still exist today. Peter would be happy to know of the progress and research that the Foundation helps make every day to improve the lives of persons who are affected from this devastating condition.

James Ogletree

When the Foundation began in 1955, most children with CF did not live to see their first day of elementary school. Today, the median predicted age of survival for a person with CF is in the mid-30s. This is remarkable progress, but not good enough. We continue to lose precious lives to CF every day. Any amount you can donate will be greatly appreciated!

Cystic fibrosis is a devastating genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. More than ten million Americans are symptomless carriers of the defective CF gene. Advances continue to be made in finding a cure, but your help is needed now -- more than ever -- to help keep up the momentum of this life-saving research.

Monica Arias

I first heard of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) a couple of years ago through friends who were also nominated to be part of Hartford's Finest. Honestly, I donated and moved on without really paying attention. Then last year through HYPE (Hartford Young Professionals and Entrepreneurs) I volunteered for the Cromwell CF Cycle for Life event. That experience really helped me understand not just what Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is, but more importantly the impact this Foundation has on individuals.

Sarah Koenig

Cystic Fibrosis is part of what I call the "Invisible Diseases". You can't tell by looking at someone that they have Cystic Fibrosis, but the effects of the disease are still present. People affected by Cystic Fibrosis look just like everyone else, but they must undergo hours of treatment and medication DAILY in order to be able to do the things that you and I take for granted, like holding a conversation while walking, or taking a deep breath.
