About Broadway Belts for PFF!

Since its inception in 2010, Broadway Belts for PFF! has grown to become the largest single fundraising event for the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation (PFF), raising over $3 million and counting to date. The NYC charity gala features Broadway stars performing some of their favorite songs and original pieces to raise funds to fight pulmonary fibrosis (PF).

Broadway Belts for PFF! began as a tribute to beloved Associated Press theater critic, Michael Kuchwara, after he passed away from pulmonary fibrosis. Tony Award-winning actress and comedienne, Julie Halston, was a founding partner of the event and shines as the evening's dynamic and witty hostess. Halston is a member of the PFF Board of Directors and one of the PFF's leading advocates nationwide. Ms. Halston's motivation for her work on Broadway Belts for PFF! is very personal as her husband, New York anchorman Ralph Howard, was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis and received a life-extending lung transplant. Howard, a generous volunteer to both the PFF and many other organizations and lover of all things New York, succumbed to complications from the disease in August 2018. In 2018, the inaugural Ralph Howard Legacy Award was presented in Howard's memory, and now annually recognizes individuals who have demonstrated extraordinary commitment to the pulmonary fibrosis community.

Ralph Howard Legacy Award

Ralph Howard’s endless curiosity about the world and his direct and generous engagement with it inspired The Ralph Howard Legacy Award. This award recognizes individuals who have demonstrated extraordinary commitment to the pulmonary fibrosis community. The inaugural award was presented at Broadway Belts for PFF! in 2019 and continues to be an integral part of the event, honoring Ralph and the incredible achievements and generosity of the recipients each year.

About the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation

At the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation, we are dedicated to making a difference in the lives of those affected by pulmonary fibrosis (PF), a form of interstitial lung disease (ILD). Pulmonary fibrosis is a process that causes lung scarring, in which fibrotic tissue blocks the movement of oxygen from inside the tiny air sacs in the lungs into the bloodstream. Low oxygen levels, and the stiff scar tissue itself, can cause people with pulmonary fibrosis to feel short of breath, particularly when walking and exercising. Over 250,000 Americans are living with PF today. Approximately 50,000 new cases are diagnosed each year and as many as 40,000 Americans die from idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) each year.

As the largest organization committed to raising awareness and providing support, our mission is to accelerate the development of new treatments and ultimately a cure for pulmonary fibrosis. Until this goal is achieved, the PFF is committed to advancing improved care of patients with PF and providing unequaled support and education resources for patients, caregivers, family members, and healthcare providers.
