CIS sportspeople paint for kidney research

The Kidney Foundation of Canada just passed along a note that several coaches, players and CIS alumni have made paintings for "A Brush of Hope: Celebrity Paintings for Kidney Research." It's part of a larger campaign involving numerous arts, entertainment and sports figures such as NHL rookie John Tavares, comic Brent Butt, musician-poet Leonard Cohen and Alex Lifeson from Rush.

It is estimated two million Canadians either have kidney disease or are at risk. Every day an average of 14 Canadians learn that their kidneys have failed.

The paintings are being auctioned on eBay. All of the money raised will be used by The Kidney Foundation of Canada for national research and programs.

CIS folk who painted include:
Todd's piece, at this writing, already has a higher bid than the one by Tavares, the NHL's No. 1 overall draft choice. Well-done, V-Reds fans!
