From the East Coast to the West Coast, clubs have been awarded for their efforts in raising funds and public awareness in the fight against cystic fibrosis. One award is presented per district, per year. The winners are announced at National Convention and presented with the Bill Skelly Banner.

About Bill Skelly

Bill Skelly is the Kinsman credited with launching the Kin-CF partnership. In 1963, Mr. Skelly invited Dr. Doug Crozier to speak to the North York Kinsmen Club about cystic fibrosis. The following year, District 8 adopted CF as its service project, and, over the course of the next four decades, the Kin-CF connection developed into a vibrant and unique partnership.
