BEF CF Ambassador, Jerry Cahill, created the You Cannot Fail program to challenge people to discover their own heroism, embrace the ups and downs of their life’s journey, make a difference by sharing that journey with others, and celebrate the stories that make them unique.
As a component of that program, BEF established the Jerry Cahill You Cannot Fail scholarship in 2012 to honor exceptional student-athletes with cystic fibrosis who, like Jerry, don’t let the disease get in their way of living lives filled with purpose, passion, optimism and courage. These energetic young adults also understand that exercise is the key to living, breathing and succeeding with CF, so they have embraced physical activity as part of their everyday routine.
Deadline: April 18, 2013
Requirements and other information can be found at the Boomer Esiason Foundation website.
