The beautiful outdoor venue of The Alexandria at Torrey Pines will once again host the annual KnockOut CF - San Diego! With the continued support of the EXOS fitness facility and with a reception following on The Farmer & The Seahorse Terrace, this afternoon and evening promise to push your limits as an unforgettable experience that will keep you coming back!
CFLF Mission Statement:
CFLF assists in providing avenues toward healthy and active lifestyles through
recreation, thereby empowering and educating people with Cystic Fibrosis on the
critical psychological, social, and emotional connections between their
lifestyle and their health.
Proceeds from this event
will benefit the greater San Diego cystic fibrosis community through CF
Recreation Grants to applicants from the area.
The “STROLO Direct Giving”
portion of the event will offer donors and sponsors the opportunity for 100% of
their contribution to directly support a grant applicant. Requests are received
for up to $500. For example, a $5,000
contribution would directly support 10 individuals seeking STROnger and LOnger
lives through access to exercise.
The CFLF is about making the most of life in the
here and now in facing the genetic lung condition cystic fibrosis until a cure
is found. We believe that living a STRONGER life through exercise with CF
contributes to also living a LONGER life with CF. Hence our tagline “Living
STROnger! Living LOnger!” and our hashtag #STROLO. The CFLF Founder, Brian
Callanan, believes that cost should never prohibit someone from pursuing
activity that can help save their life, and that exercise is the conduit
between physical health and mental health in facing the lifelong challenge of CF.
Since 2007, more than 1,200 people with CF have been helped in affording more
than $550,000 of exercise related activity. But this is only a fraction of the
people who have asked for help, and would be eligible if the funds were
available. This is where your help is needed most. Please help us make a direct STROLO impact
YOUR $50 REGISTRATION will include:
A 75-minute multi-station fitness experience including 15-minute stations of punching bags, spinning, soft tissue and more!
Live DJ spinning the beats to pump hard to
Event performance T-shirt & hand wraps

100% of proceeds from KnockOut CF will help the CFLF fund CF Recreation Grants to provide gym memberships, skiing/snowboarding lessons, horseback riding, gymnastics, and many other activities, to people living with CF as fun, empowering ways to improve their health and quality of life through physical activity.
To date, over 1,000 people with CF have been helped with CFLF Recreation Grants, totaling over $500,000 in direct assistance.
Maintaining an active lifestyle is one of the best ways for people living with CF to not only maintain, but also improve their health; it can be the difference between life and death. The problem for many is that the cost of an activity can be a barrier. That is where the CF Recreation Grants provided by CFLF can make a huge difference to someone "Living Stronger, Living Longer!"
The CFLF Founder and Director, BRIAN CALLANAN was diagnosed at birth with CF and was not expected to live to age 10. Now in his early 40's, and nearing the median life expectancy, Brian is healthier than ever thanks to regular hiking, biking, and swimming, leading to amazing lung scores and an impressive, ever improving projected lifespan. Help him to help others achieve the same.
CF is one of the most common life-shortening hereditary diseases. It is a progressive, degenerative disease with no known cure. Most individuals with CF die young from chronic airway infection and lung failure.
CF is most typically identified with abnormally thick and sticky mucus that clogs the airways of the lungs and pancreatic ducts responsible for carrying digestive enzymes to the stomach. There are also many known complications including CF Related Diabetes, liver and kidney compromise, osteopenia and psychosocial challenges including depression and anxiety.
People with CF are limited from interacting with one another in person due to multi-resistant bacteria that can transmit between patient lungs through the air.
CF is a unique and complicated disease that has over 1,000 different forms, but with approximately 80% of patients sharing one primary form. Recent medical advancements continue to improve the management, quality of life and lifespan for those with the disease, and the CF Recreation Grants provided by the CFLF is one approach that goes beyond the medical, helping improve quality of life beyond just the lungs.
KnockOut CF was born in 2014 in the emerging Seaport District of Boston, MA. George Foreman III welcomed the event to his facility - Everybody Fights - a community of everyday fighters who fight for happiness; theirs and that of others. George explains that Everybody Fights is the place where we congregate to prepare and inspire each other to face life everyday challenges with a fighter’s attitude. When we use the word fight we are just referring to the everyday struggles and triumphs that we all experience in pursuit of happiness.
In 2015 we were named Best of Boston because our goal is to create a space for people looking for something authentic who want to increase their overall health and check in to a community were they feel a sense of belonging everyday.
