Local family reaches $1M goal to fund Cystic Fibrosis cure

Updated: Dec 12, 2023

Started fundraising after Julia was diagnosed

(NEW ALSACE, Ind.) -- A local family has accomplished a major goal that they began pursuing 17 years ago.

Julia Bulach was 14-months-old when she was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis in 2006.

When she was diagnosed, community members asked how they could help the Bulach family.

"That is when family and friends stepped up and have been with us ever since," Julia's mother, Jenny said.

They formed TEAM4JB to raise money to go toward finding a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. Their goal was to donate $1 million to the cause.

Dollar-by-dollar and penny-by-penny, the family has collected donations during events, fundraisers and even at businesses.

If you visit places like Alig's Shell in St. Leon, you'll find a collection jar with Julia's name and story that has been there for years.

On Sunday, Jenny Bulach had a major announcement she wanted to share with the community. They have successfuly raised $1 million for the CF Foudation after 17 years of fundraising.

"This is not possible without the community of friends, family and continual donations as we fight for a cure for cystic fibrosis. Thank you to everyone who has been with us every step of the way. As we celebrate our milestone accomplishment, our fight has to continue on until there is a cure for every person fighting Cystic Fibrosis," Bulach said. 

Julia is now 18-years-old and graduated from East Central this past summer. She is a freshman at Purdue.
