A Salmon Arm couple was among the 14 volunteers and groups recognized by Cystic Fibrosis Canada for their efforts to raise awareness and essential funds for cystic fibrosis research, care, and advocacy.

Kathy and Stu Bradford were named Volunteer Fundraising Champion as the 14 families, individuals and service clubs from across BC and the Yukon were recognized in the 14th annual regional and national awards.
