To the Editor,
This year marks the 51st anniversary of the partnership of Kin Canada and the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Association to raise funds in support of Cystic Fibrosis research.
Today, because of the investment in research, children with Cystic Fibrosis are living longer, productive lives as a result of vital CF research as patient care.
In 2014, Kin Canada raised $1.2 Million nationally. Over the past 51 years, a total of $42 Million has been raised as our commitment, and we are more confident than ever that a cure or control will be found in our lifetime.
Locally, the Kinsmen Club of Uxbridge will once again be holding Tag Day Fundraisers on Friday, May 8, and Saturday, May 9 at several local Uxbridge businesses.
In addition to the Club members past and present and supported by many dedicated community volunteers who are fully involved with this important cause, the Kinsmen would welcome any other volunteers age 16 and over who can contribute two hours of their time to help complete a full roster of canvassers for this important cause.
If you are able to offer help for Tag Days, please contact Kin Campaign Chair Jim Campbell, at 905-852-6086.
