Today, Kinsmen and Kinettes remain our loyal friends, continually fundraising for CF research and promoting CF awareness. In 1997, Kin reached a great milestone when total funds raised for CF amounted to $25 million. In 2001, Kin raised more than $1 million to help beat CF, bringing the Kin's cumulative contribution to the CCFF to more than $30 million! These funds have helped Canadian researchers make major strides in the fight against cystic fibrosis.
The hard work and support of Kinsmen and Kinettes is deeply appreciated by Canadians with CF. Since 1964, Kin and the CCFF have shared in many exciting accomplishments, including the discovery of the gene responsible for CF in 1989. The discovery would not have been possible without the tremendous help of our Kin friends.
