Update: March 16, 2017

The 12th Annual Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Week at ACES was THE  MOST SUCCESSFUL YEAR EVER!  Students learned about cystic fibrosis and became CURE FINDERS through the various events at school.  We want to thank all who participated, volunteered and made such generous donations. 

Thanks to the support of all involved, an unprecedented $8,180.42 was raised!  This will be donated directly to the National Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to fund research. 

Thanking you from the bottom of our hearts . . . and lungs!
