Cystic Fibrosis Canada — Toronto & District Chapter
Please join Cystic Fibrosis Canada Toronto & District Chapter as we walk and run to raise funds to support cystic fibrosis research and care.
- Cystic fibrosis (CF) is the most common, fatal genetic disease affecting young Canadians
- Cystic fibrosis mainly affects the lungs and digestive system, where thick mucus develops and makes it difficult to breathe and absorb nutrients from food
- 1 in 25 Canadians carry the defective gene responsible for CF; two carrier parents have a 25% chance of having a child with CF.
- 1 in 3,600 children born in Canada has cystic fibrosis — only half of these children will live to see the age of 47.
Why should I help?
- All funds raised through the STWM Charity Challenge funds research towards a cure or control for CF and supports CF patient care clinics and transplant programs
- Every dollar raised makes a difference in the lives of those living with CF!
- FREE Training Programs for all participants.
- Team CF Toronto t-shirts for all participants
