CANADIAN CYSTIC FIBROSIS

 

In 1987, the Association of Kinsmen and Kinette Clubs adopted CF as a National Service Project.

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.

 Kin Canada is the CCFF's longest-standing partner and has raised nearly $33 million, to May 2005!

The Pas Kinsmen have contributed approximately $50,000.00 towards CF since their Inception in 1987.

In 2006 the total contributions The Pas Kinsmen have made towards CF up to August 31, 2006 is approximately

$3750

The day before Mother's Day is National Kin CF Day, and the Month of May is Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month.
