A couple of virtual fundraising events are coming up on Sunday.

The 6th annual Walk to Make Cystic Fibrosis History will take place on Zoom and includes a host of activities, including the 10 for 10 challenge with KiSS 100.5 morning show host Kevin Oschefski.

He’s pledged to run/walk 3 km on his treadmill for every CF fighter in our community, for a total of 30 km, and invites people to do their own activities.

“For ten minutes walk around your house, for ten minutes go on your exercise bike, for ten minutes climb stairs, whatever it is we want people to do something that’s symbolic to those 10 CF fighters,” he says.

Sunday’s event is raising funds for CF research advocacy and treatment.

“This past week the CF community lost one of it’s fighters so we all want people to do their part to make sure that that doesn’t happen again, that that loss of life comes to an end and we find that cure,” Oschefski says.
