Fisch for a Cure: a Toronto ME / CFS Music Event

A dynamic group of passionate friends are hosting Fisch for a Cure, a fundraiser to honor of patient and Team OMF hero Ryan Fisch in Toronto, Canada on Saturday, April 1. The event is being held at the Steam Whistle Brewery and will include a live band, dj, open bar, and tons of fun. If you are in the Toronto area, we invite you to reserve your place and join them in support of ME / CFS research.Ryan Fisch has been severely ill with ME / CFS for nearly 3 years. His friends reached out to us a year ago and to join in our efforts to End ME / CFS.

One of Ryan’s closest friends is Russell Citron, founder of CrowdChange. Fisch for a Cure, and some of these other wonderful fundraising projects, have used the CrowdChange fundraising platform to benefit OMF. Russell has generously donated the use of CrowdChange for all OMF events. We encourage TEAM OMF participants to explore how CrowdChange can support your fundraising.
