15th Annual Jake’s Ladder
The Dyne Family in conjunction with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation hosted the 15th Annual Jake’s Ladder on Sunday, October 14, at the Commons at Calabasas. Jake’s Ladder is part of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s annual fundraising efforts, celebrating Jacob Dyne, who was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at the age of 14 months. Their mission is to help people with cystic fibrosis live longer, healthier lives while simultaneously searching for a cure.
Cystic fibrosis is a life-threatening genetic disease for which there is no known cure. It affects 30,000 adults and children in the United States and 70,000 people worldwide. Over the past 15 years, this event has raised over $2.1 million dollars. Jake’s Ladder is on pace to raise over $90,000 this year to help the much-needed Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Nonsense and Rare Mutations Research and Therapeutic Initiative.
