Sudbury Makes Strides In The Fight Against Cystic Fibrosis

Join The Walk to Make Cystic Fibrosis History on Sunday, May 28th at Kivi Park! Sudbury will be one of the many cities participating in the annual walk and money raised goes towards world-class research and to advocate high-quality individual CF care. The 3.5 kilometre Green Trail at Kivi Park will be dedicated to the walk but participants will have access to the full park.

“We are excited to be able to support groups like Cystic Fibrosis Canada and their effort to raise money and awareness about our country’s most common fatal genetic disease,” said Melissa Sheridan, Park Leader, Kivi Park.

It is estimated that one in every 3,600 children born has CF and currently there is no cure. Sudbury is home to the only CF clinic in Northern Ontario – the Sudbury Cystic Fibrosis clinic in NEO Kids at Health Sciences North. According to the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Registry, there are 30 children and 43 adults that attend the clinic in Sudbury.

The Walk To Make Cystic Fibrosis History ­– Sudbury is proudly supported by CAA, Kivi Park, Maslack Supply, Pioneer Construction and Fisher Wavy Inc.
