State Fair Meadowlands Helps Raise Awareness & Funds for Cystic Fibrosis

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J., May 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Did you know that on average Cystic Fibrosis affects over 500 individuals in NJ alone, 30,000 in the U.S. and 70,000 worldwide? While progress is being made to better understand what causes this inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system, there's no known cure -- only better treatments that have extended the predicted median age of survival for a person with Cystic Fibrosis to more than 37 years.

To help increase awareness and funding for the Greater New Jersey Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, State Fair Meadowlands, NJ's largest annual family-fun event, will be holding a 50/50 raffle each night of the Fair, It will also add Cystic Fibrosis as the official not-for-profit, charity organization to its website.

In addition, Al Dorso, President of State Fair Meadowlands, helped arrange for Road Scholar Transport, a trucking company that promotes good causes on its trucks, to dedicate its latest 18 wheel truck to raising awareness for Cystic Fibrosis. The "Big Red Rig" features the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's logo, a "65 Roses" theme and a photo of the smiling face of NJ Chapter volunteer Bill Squire's 11-year-old son, Sean, who has Cystic Fibrosis.

"I'm happy to help raise much-needed awareness for Cystic Fibrosis through the thousands of people each day who visit the Fair and the thousands more who see this truck driving down the road," said Al Dorso, President of State Fair Meadowlands.

As this truck travels through the Mid-Atlantic States, more than 100 million people are expected to see it. Road Scholar will donate a penny to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation for each mile the truck drives until it reaches 10 million miles, which could result in $100,000 for Cystic Fibrosis research!
