Harrisburg, PA (Vocus) June 23, 2009 -- The Keystone Peer Review Organization, Inc. (KePRO), a leading quality improvement and care management organization, is pleased to announce the donation of $12,260 to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.    

KePRO employees from offices located in six different states recently took part in the CF Great Strides walk in an effort to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The combined efforts of the employees, both those who made the walk and those who collected funds from their family, friends and neighbors, proudly raised $7260.25 for the cause. In addition to its employees' efforts, KePRO generously donated another $5,000 to advance the mission of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, bringing the total KePRO donation to $12,260.

"I am very proud of KePRO employees, their families and friends who all contributed so generously to help fight this disease," said Joe Dougher, Chief Executive Officer of KePRO. "Everyone put a considerable amount of time and effort into making this fund-raising event a success and they more than surpassed my expectations. The KePRO family is truly a caring team."

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is a nonprofit donor-supported organization that strives to assure the development of the means to cure and control cystic fibrosis and to improve the quality of life for those with the disease. The Foundation is the leading organization in the United States devoted to cystic fibrosis. It funds and accredits more than 115 CF care centers, 95 adult care programs and 50 affiliate programs, and has 80 chapters and branch offices nationwide.

Cystic fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the United States (70,000 worldwide). In the 1950s, few children with cystic fibrosis lived to attend elementary school. Today, advances in research and medical treatments have further enhanced and extended life for children and adults with CF. Many people with the disease can now expect to live into their 30s, 40s and beyond.
