'Remembering Michael' campaign under way

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Hersh Business Services Ltd. of Martinsburg, has established the "Remembering Michael" campaign to raise awareness of cystic fibrosis and support the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The campaign is in memory of Michael Hedrick who suffered from cystic fibrosis and who recently died at the age of 35.

The initial goal of the campaign is to raise $10,000 for CFF; however, two fundraisers have already been set up to help add to that number. The first is scheduled for Saturday, March 21, at Nan and Pop's Place in Martinsburg; and the second has been scheduled for Saturday, April 4, at Citizens Fire Department in Charles Town, W.Va.
