    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    …Canadian researchers are viewed as leaders in the global effort to find a cure or control for CF.

    Th at effort, however, takes dollars …lots of dollars.

    “Research is our answer,” said Nancy Clayton, vice-president of the Niagara chapter of Cystic Fibrosis Canada.

    The largest local fundraiser to support CF research is the annual $1 Museum Day on Clifton Hill.

    The 26th annual event takes place Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

    Niagara Falls residents will be able to visit 17 tourist attractions for just $1 each.

    Clayton has been organizing the popular community event since 1988.

    She came up with the idea after trying to think of a way to raise money for a disease few people were aware of.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Niagara museums will go loonie later this month with more than a dozen attractions in the Clifton Hill area offering a deep discount on admission prices for local residents.

    Niagara Falls residents can visit 14 attractions for $1 on Jan. 15 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

    The popular $1 Museum Day event will raise funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Canada. More than $12,000 was raised last year.

    The event has been entertaining local residents for the past 24 years.

    “It’s become a second-generation event,” said Nancy Clayton, vice-president of the foundation’s Niagara chapter.

    “Now, we get people who grew up with the event who are now bringing their own kids.”
