To encourage, enable and support Cystic Fibrosis patients to live beyond limitations of the disease.

Through our targeted programming, including athletic sponsorship, scholarship, mentoring, adventure activities, and fundraising efforts, Coach-Ed emphasizes healthy, active lifestyles for those living with CF.  We also aim to increase social awareness of CF and the benefits of exercise and teamwork as part of a responsible approach to treatment management. Our programs support this active lifestyle, while providing a sense of community, support, and as much levity and fun as possible.



Coach-Ed believes goal-setting is a fundamental tool for success – in life, health, academics, athletics, and career.  Goals are best achieved when frequently evaluated and shifted as necessary to meet changing circumstances, and to allow for successes along the way!  We commit to achieving our long-term vision and goals by continuing to carefully evaluate the needs and wishes of the community we serve.  As part of our dedication to teamwork, we want our supporters and participants to feel included in this goal setting process, and similarly committed to Coach-Ed’s vision.  To share your ideas or to become more involved, please contact our Director, Virginia Sayer Langloss at vsayer@coach-ed.org.


Coach-Ed has a number of community-based chapters in the Northeastern United States. Through these chapters, we work face-to-face with CF clinics, CFers and their families to provide assistance and develop that sense of teamwork.
