  • About

    We are pleased to announce that plans are underway for PACSUN'S PIPELINE TO A CURE Dinner Gala benefiting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, scheduled for Saturday, July 19, 2008 at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach, California. This black tie and flip flop gala will be recognizing the positive effect that surfing has on the lung health of children with cystic fibrosis. We are thrilled to join with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, our title sponsor PACSUN, Honorary Co-Chairmen Laird Hamilton and David Kalama and the Kelly Slater Foundation in this inaugural event. A special thanks to our other sponsors as well: BJ's Restaurant, Newport Surf Camp, Wahoo's Fish Tacos, Cordell Surfboards, and more to come!

    PIPELINE TO A CURE is a fundraising campaign which recognizes the remarkable connection between surfing and this deadly genetic disease. One of the serious effects of cystic fibrosis is the production of thick sticky mucus which clogs the lungs and leads to life threatening lung infections. In recent years, doctors in Australia identified surfers with cystic fibrosis having significantly healthier lungs than their non surfer patients. While many surfers have long known the positive health effects of saltwater on the sinuses, it is simply amazing that saltwater mist has a direct positive effect on the lungs of CF patients. Doctors have since developed a breathing treatment called Hypertonic Saline Solution which helps cystic fibrosis patients eliminate this bacteria laden mucus. This new therapy daily mimics a 'surf session' for the lungs of those who suffer from cystic fibrosis.
