Hockey road trip raffle in support of cystic fibrosis

Cystic Fibrosis is the most common fatal genetic disease affecting Canadian children and young adults

The local cystic fibrosis chapter is offering a chance to win a hockey road trip and support cystic fibrosis research.

Winning prize includes: VIP tickets to three NHL games Thursday, March 15, 2012, Phoenix in Calgary, Friday, March 16, Calgary in Edmonton, Saturday, March 17 Columbus in Vancouver; airfare for two to all three games; hotel accommodation; and $500 spending money.

Tickets are available at: Action Source for Sports, Intersport, Steve Marshall Ford, Balloons ‘N More Party Shop in Willow Point or by calling 250 923 4992.

All proceeds are in support of the fight against cystic fibrosis, a disease known only too well to two young brothers who have recently moved to the Campbell River area, 9 year old River and 7-year-old Quinn Gray.

Their mother Tracey Gray said, “the boys are just like any other children – they like to have fun, play and do sports.”

While the brothers like to joke around and have fun, the whole family takes cystic fibrosis very seriously.

“It is crucial that River and Quinn do physiotherapy twice daily to help keep their lungs clear and take all their medication or they will quite simply not survive,” said Tracey.  A good part of their day is devoted to dealing with the effects of cystic fibrosis.  River also has to deal with extra dietary modifications due to celiac disease.

Cystic Fibrosis is the most common fatal genetic disease affecting Canadian children and young adults.  There is no cure. Funds raised from the Hockey Road Trip raffle will support CF research.
