KITCHENER, ON – This May, Farwell4Hire benefits from our Community Impact 50/50! Rangers Reach is excited to announce its latest partnership in support of Mike Farwell’s “Farwell4Hire” Campaign: raising funds and awareness in support of Cystic Fibrosis (CF) through our latest Community Impact 50/50 Raffle.
The Raffle will support research and awareness into finding a cure for CF. For Mike, the cause has become a very personal one, having lost two sisters to the deadly disease.
Mike’s annual fundraising campaign was created in memory of Luanne and Sheri Farwell. These courageous sisters lost their lives to CF, the most common fatal genetic disease in Canada. Luanne died in the fall of 1993 at the age of 24 and, just nine months later, Sheri succumbed to cystic fibrosis at the age of 18. These young women left a legacy of caring, compassion, and kindness, characteristics that are remembered fondly to this day. This campaign carries on Luanne and Sheri’s legacy by contributing to important research that will one day create a world without CF. Rangers Reach is proud to be on board and join in Mike’s journey to improve the lives of people living with this terminal disease.
Craig Campbell, Executive Director of Rangers Reach added “When Mike approached us and asked if we would be interested in being involved, it was an instant ‘yes’. The natural tie in with Mike being the play-by-play voice of the Rangers made this a perfect fit for both of us. This is a campaign that that tells a true to life story, one that our communtiy and fans can relate to and we are extremely excited to be on board.”
