The Niagara-on-the-Lake Kinsmen rallied for cystic fibrosis and raised more than $300 for research.

Twenty-two cars and over 40 kids joined in the fun for the Kinsmen Zone Cystic Fibrosis car rally on Oct. 17.

Vehicles came from all over Niagara as parents and kids were dressed up in their Halloween outfits. NOTL Kinsmen Ray Hobbs and Ken Slingerland handed out candy for the kids.

The only Niagara-on-the-Lake stop on the rally was at the “Little White Church” at 15796 Niagara Parkway beside Walker’s Fruit Market.

The Living Water Wayside Chapel was built in 1964 by the Niagara Falls Christian Reformed Church and is famous for being the Guinness Book of World Records holder for the smallest chapel in the World.

Owner Jim Walker provided baked cookies from the market for the kids. Kinsmen collected over $340 for cystic fibrosis, including a very generous donation from Walker.

Since 1964, Kinsmen across Canada have raised more than $50 million for cystic fibrosis. The NOTL club has raised an average of $1,000 every year since the club was formed in 1970.
