Run the Race and Persevere until There is a Cure
The Team Eleck Foundation was created in 2014 as a way to help raise money and awareness about Cystic Fibrosis and be a part of finding a cure. Our mission is to serve families dealing with Cystic Fibrosis to enhance the quality of life for patients and their loved ones. We believe that through consistent faith, perseverance and generosity we can find the cure for Cystic Fibrosis.
As part of our mission to provide Cystic Fibrosis patients and families the services and support they need, our foundation provides options to fulfill financial and emotional gaps created by a Cystic Fibrosis diagnosis.
Students with Cystic Fibrosis face a significant challenge when transitioning to college. While the traditional student can often handle a part-time job and the demands of classes, students with Cystic Fibrosis must make their health the number one priority. Our Foundation strives to give students the financial freedom to focus on their health first while working to earn their degree.
Living with Cystic Fibrosis can be a financial hardship even for families with excellent access to healthcare. Regular treatments are not enough to help Cystic Fibrosis patients maintain the everyday battle against the disease. Services such as personal trainers, acupuncture, physical therapy and more help CF patients maintain quality of life and a proactive grasp on their health. Many of these additional services are not covered through traditional health insurance and the additional out of pocket costs can cripple some families. The Team Eleck Foundation provides financial support to help CF families gain access to all treatment options so that every Cystic Fibrosis patient has the opportunity to battle the disease as best as they can.
Cystic Fibrosis patients do not walk through their journey alone. Having a child or family member diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis takes a toll on the family as well. Our Foundation is dedicated to providing families the support they need through counseling, financial aid and other services so no one has to run this race alone.
Make A Wish Foundation
At 8 years old, Eleck was granted a wish through the Make a Wish Foundation. Knowing that his treatments would never allow him the opportunity to serve in the United States military, Eleck’s wish was a true statement to his service-oriented heart. He chose to become an Army Ranger. The Make a Wish Foundation flew the Stone family to meet with Army Rangers at Fort Benning, Georgia where for two days, Eleck was an United States Army Ranger. This priceless experience allowed Eleck to be made an Honorary Veteran by the New Mexico Governor’s Office and has inspired his involvement speaking with military and veterans groups about Cystic Fibrosis. The Make A Wish Foundation made Eleck’s dreams come true and our Foundation strives to help other children and families continue to receive these once-in-a-lifetime opportunities. A portion of all our events and donations are given to the Make A Wish Foundation.
