Cystic Fibrosis Foundation thankful for supporters

Summer seems the perfect time to reflect upon a busy, successful fundraising season and to express our gratitude to the people of Central Alberta.

Summer seems the perfect time to reflect upon a busy, successful fundraising season and to express our gratitude to the people of Central Alberta.

We are so thankful for all the support our chapter received from businesses and individuals alike for our recent fundraising events: Mums for Moms, Great Strides Walk, Soaps It Up For CF, and Ride for the Breathe of Life.

For everyone’s information we wish to advise that our temporary office space in the CIRS building in Red Deer is now closed. This office was funded for the past 18 months with a grant from the Wild Rose Foundation and we wish to express our appreciation for this opportunity.

Our volunteer chapter remains active in public awareness, fundraising, and support for families living with cystic fibrosis. The phone number remains the same, 403-347-5075, and email address is cfcentralalberta@gmail.com — please contact us for further information about cystic fibrosis, events, volunteer opportunities, etc.

Again thank you and we look forward to your continuing support.
