Congratulations to our 2017-2018 Sacks for CF Scholarship Recipients!

The Boomer Esiason Foundation has awarded prestigious “Sacks for CF” academic scholarships to 30 outstanding students with cystic fibrosis.

Through the NFL season, longtime BEF partner Abbvie makes a donation to the BEF Sacks for CF scholarship program for every quarterback sack recorded during NFL Monday Night Football games. Then, during the Super Bowl, these funds are awarded to college students with cystic fibrosis based on academic achievement and adherence to daily CF therapy.
