Cystic Fibrosis Fundraiser

Calgary Flames defenceman TJ Brodie will be strutting his stuff for charity.

The Chatham native is modelling Thursday night in Catwalk for a Cure, a fundraiser for Cystic Fibrosis and organ and tissue donation awareness.

Senior Fundraising Coordinator for Cystic Fibrosis Canada Chantelle Foreman-Meadows says a local nursing student came up with the idea.

“Stephanie Wilson, she’s a third year University of Windsor Nursing student, and she has led this event in support of her boyfriend Ian Badder, who had a double lung transplant and also lives with Cystic Fibrosis,” says Foreman-Meadows.

Tickets to the event at the Chatham Armouries are sold out.
