May is Cystic Fibrosis month. Cystic Fibrosis is a progressive, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and limits the ability to breathe over time. There are over 70,000 people living with Cystic Fibrosis worldwide.
- Approximately 1,000 new cases of CF are diagnosed each year.
- More than 75 percent of people with CF are diagnosed by age 2.
- More than half of the CF population is age 18 or older.
Thousands of wonderful volunteers will come together to raise awareness about this disease.

Congratulations to Brittany McGuire of our Cleveland office for spearheading a very successful fundraising campaign through Great Strides of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. We are proud to support Brittany’s efforts. (Brittany is front left in the image above, surrounded by her coworkers in our Cleveland office.)
PrincetonOne’s RPO team ran a “penny war” challenge to lend their support to Brittany’s campaign to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. They divided up into three teams. The winning team was able to make the donation in their name while the leaders of the second and third place teams got a pie in the face. The third place team collected 6 pounds of pennies. The runner up collected fourteen and a half pounds of pennies. The winning team collected a whopping 41 pounds of pennies.
Congratulations Team Katniss and our appreciation to Jonathan Lapsley and Fred Jones for being good sports for a great cause!
Gout Awareness Day
May 22nd is National Gout Awareness Day, and PrincetonOne’s RPO team wore purple in solidarity.
Gout is caused by the buildup of uric acid in the body; several actions can lead to an excessive buildup, and gout is then triggered by stress, alcohol, or drugs.
