A Salmon Arm couple was among the 14 volunteers and groups recognized by Cystic Fibrosis Canada for their efforts to raise awareness and essential funds for cystic fibrosis research, care, and advocacy.

Kathy and Stu Bradford were named Volunteer Fundraising Champion as the 14 families, individuals and service clubs from across BC and the Yukon were recognized in the 14th annual regional and national awards.

The awards recognize and honour individuals whose volunteer contributions to Cystic Fibrosis Canada and its local chapters made a significant impact on the lives of individuals with cystic fibrosis. These volunteers have demonstrated leadership and initiative while advancing the mission and vision of Cystic Fibrosis Canada.

“The opportunity to meet and work with so many of the volunteers has been truly a privilege, and I was honoured to recognize 17 recipients with their awards for their efforts that have gone above and beyond. Congratulations to the 2020 award recipients.”
