THE 17TH ANNUAL "Sing for Breath" concert to benefit children with cystic fibrosis will start at 7 p.m. tomorrow at Locust Grove Church of the Brethren in Mount Airy.

After learning that a friend's child had been diagnosed with cystic fibrosis, Nelva Mount organized the concert series to increase people's awareness of the No. 1 genetic killer of children and young adults in the United States.

The Mount Airy concert will feature adult performances. A second concert featuring children will be held at 1: 30 p.m. Sunday at Frederick Church of the Brethren.

Both concerts are free, but donations are encouraged. For those who cannot attend, donations can be made to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, c/o Nelva Mount, 6423 New London Road, New Market 21771.
