The Kin family has been a part of the Comox Valley since 1937.
Kin Canada – the Association of Kinsmen, Kinette and Kin clubs is proud to be an all-Canadian service organization
made up of outstanding community volunteers. From coast to coast, members are enhancing quality of life in their
communities by promoting service, fellowship, positive values and national pride. The Association
boasts a proud 89-year history dedicated to fostering lifelong friendships while
“Serving the Community’s Greatest Needs.”
The hard work and support of Kinsmen and Kinettes is deeply appreciated by Canadians with CF. Since 1964, Kin and the CCFF have shared in many exciting accomplishments, including the discovery of the gene responsible for CF in 1989. The discovery would not have been possible without the tremendous help of our Kin friends.
When Kinsmen and Kinettes first joined in the fight against CF, children with the disease were not expected to live past the age of four. But today, because of Kin, children and young adults with cystic fibrosis are often living into their 30s and beyond. For almost every year of Kin support, we have earned an extra year of life for a CF child. We could never have come so far, so fast, without the continued support of Kin.
The Kinsmen Foundation is the District Project of the Kinsmen and Kinette Clubs of British Columbia and
Yukon, and the Kin Family takes great pride in their accomplishments over the past 56 years.
The mission of the Kinsmen Foundation is to raise funds to support many worthwhile organizations and individuals facing the daily challenges of
living with a severe physical disability and to improve their quality of life and independence.
