The Mauli Ola Foundation was organized to promote education and awareness of genetic disorders. The MOF raises funds to support programs for kids and adults with life-threatening illnesses and disabilities through social events such as music concerts, sports (golf tournaments), galas, and other great events. We want to provide a direct and immediate option for children with genetic disorders an enjoyable and healthy way of life through natural treatments.
The Mauli Ola Foundation (MOF) was established to help people with genetic disorders. In the case of cystic fibrosis (CF), we take children and young adults surfing because the saline acts as a natural treatment by hydrating the lungs creating better lung function. The saline is not a cure, it is a treatment. We believe introducing kids and young adults with CF to surfing will provide an immediate yet temporary alleviation of some of their symptoms. Our mission is to raise awareness and educate the public about the genuine connection between surfing and cystic fibrosis.
Mauli Ola was recently awarded the Agent of Change Award at the 2011 Surfer Poll Awards. Check out the website at www.mauliola.org.
