Advocis Peel Halton Tees Off for Charity-
Taking a Stroke Against Cystic Fibrosis!
The Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CCFF) offers its heartfelt thanks to the Advocis Peel Halton Chapter for hosting the 14th annual Advocis Peel Halton Charity Golf Classic for the CCFF. We were thrilled with the attendance and the beautiful weather we had at Bramptonís Lionhead Golf & Country Club.
The outstanding efforts of the tournament committee, participants and volunteers proved to be the key to this eventís success. At the end of the day $25,000 was raised to support the CCFFís work.
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is the most common fatal inherited disease affecting young Canadians. CF primarily affects breathing and digestion.
The CCFF is a Canada-wide health charity with 50 volunteer chapters. The Foundationís mission is to help people with CF primarily by funding cystic fibrosis research, and by supporting high quality care.
At the Golf Classic, Amanda Sinclair, a young Peel native with CF, shared her touching story, including her life after a double lung transplant. Her story punctuated the urgent need to support the CCFF.
I would like to thank the Advocis Peel Halton chapter for their long-standing support. This is the second year Iíve attended this wonderful event. In its 14 years of existence, the tournament has raised more than $300,000. It was my pleasure and honour to, once again, be part of this incredible golf tournament.
The CCFF offers its special appreciation to the Corporate Sponsors who made this tournament possible:
Great West Life, London Life, Canada Life
RBC Insurance, Industrial Alliance, Sun Life Financial
AIG, Pepperwood Restaurants
IDC Financial, Manulife Financial, Pallett Valo, SEI Investments
Thank you for being the reason Canadians with CF can keep breathing!
