Editor, The Independent:
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. A team is two guys and two gals, or one guy and three gals, or four gals. You play at your own risk. 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 the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. CF is the No. 1 genetic killer of children under 18 years of age. In 1980 the average life expectancy was seven, 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.
