Team Ethan raises $5,300 for CF Great Strides event

A team from Port Alberni has raised more than $5,000 for cystic fibrosis research in support of a little boy born with the disease.

Last Sunday (May 26, 2013), about 30 of Leila Sturgeon’s and Keith Ellwood’s family, friends and co-workers attended the CF Great Strides Walk in Nanaimo under the Team Ethan banner, raising more than $5,300. Sturgeon and Ellwood’s son Ethan was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis when he was two weeks old. Donations are still being accepted and can be made by going online to www.cysticfibrosis.ca/greatstrides and searching “Team Ethan” under team search and Nanaimo as the location.
