Canoe of Hope: Junior Henderson (left)

Canoe of Hope

Junior Henderson (left), his daughter MacKenzie, Sylvanna Denroche, and Kiera Arsenault place items in the Canoe of Hope that Henderson carved for the Campbell River chapter of Cystic Fibrosis Canada. The chest is to serve as a time capsule containing present-day items that chapter members and supporters place inside. The chest will be kept in Strathcona Gardens and opened when a cure for cystic fibrosis is found. The Gardens was chosen as a location because it houses Rod Brind’ Amour Arena, named after the hockey star who is also know for his support in the fight against cystic fibrosis.
