KITCHENER, ON – While the Kitchener Rangers entertained us with exciting hockey into mid-May this season, work behind the scenes continued so we’d be ready to kick of our 2nd Annual Community Impact 50/50 Raffle to benefit Mike Farwell’s “Farwell4Hire” Campaign, raising funds and awareness in support of Cystic Fibrosis (CF).
Last year’s raffle resulted in a massive $113,640.00 Jackpot for Cameron Swartzentruber of Kitchener!.
For Mike, the cause has become a very personal one, having lost two sisters to the deadly disease. Annually, he embarks on an involved and personal campaign to raise much needed fund to support research and awareness into finding a cure for CF.
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 again in 2022 by joining Mike’s journey to improve the lives of people living with this terminal disease.
“There was no question when Mike approached us about reviving the Rangers Reach 50/50 Raffle for his 2022 Campaign, we were all in! Mike’s long time involvement in being the play-by-play voice of the Rangers makes the decision to support his efforts even easier. Mike has lived the story, and it’s one that our communtiy and fans can relate to.”, said Rangers Reach Executive Director, Craig Campbell about the campaign.
