Heroes for Cystic Fibrosis is a day of table top role-playing to raise money and awareness for Cystic Fibrosis.

Our friends at The Devil’s Bench (436 Colborne St. East, Brantford Ontario) have been the event’s gracious hosts since its inception. To date the annual event has raised more than $10,000 for Cystic Fibrosis Canada. Our next event will be held in the spring of 2019.
