Luke Frederick

Luke Frederick | Charlotte, NC | Age: 11
Recipient Bio: 
Luke enjoys karate not only because he knows how important exercise is for his CF, but also because he likes learning about self defense. "This will help my CF because in karate you have to have a black belt attitude. A black belt attitude is always listening and respecting parents, and trying my best. My parents tell me to do my treatments so then I'll listen to them. Another reason is that I exercise in karate and exercising makes my lungs stronger." Among the usual struggles of being a middle schooler, Luke has to deal with taking pills and keeping up on his health. Participating in karate is not only his favorite sport but it keeps him active which makes his lungs stronger. He used his grant to pay for a karate black belt leadership program.
