Editor, The Independent:

It is year No. 11 for “Fun in the Sun & Sand.” Come join us as we try to “dig” up a cure for Cystic Fibrosis and “spike” out the disease.

It is time once again to play in the Sun and Sand for a good cause. The 11th annual Cystic Fibrosis Volleyball “Fun’draiser” will be Saturday, July 11, at Café Sports in Perry. The cost is $60 per team, with a team consisting of two guys and two gals, or one guy and three gals, or four gals.

We play rain or shine. Call to pre-register at (517) 648-8963. Check in is at 9 a.m. and we start play about 10 a.m. All Proceeds go to Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Cystic Fibrosis is the No. 1 genetic killer of children under 18 years of age. In 1980 the average life expectancy was 7, now it is 30. One in 30 people are carriers of the CF gene and may not know it. There is no government funding for any research.

We raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to “add tomorrows” for kids and adults with CF.

Bridget Mortimore, Morrice
