Description:

Shinerama is Canada's largest post-secondary fundraiser in support of Cystic Fibrosis Canada. Over 35,000 student volunteers from 60 Canadian universities and colleges across the country come together every year to make a difference in the lives of those battling cystic fibrosis (CF). Student volunteers all over Canada are shining shoes, flipping burgers, washing cars and doing whatever it takes to raise crucial funding to fight cystic fibrosis. This national event puts the "fun" in fundraising! This year marks Shinerama's 50th anniversary! Since 1964, Shinerama has raised nearly $25 million dollars for life-saving CF research and care. We would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all past and present Shiners. The support from Shinerama schools and students over the past 50 years has been instrumental to advancing the battle against this devastating disease. We invite all Shine alumni to visit the Alumni section to learn more about the exciting new alumni program we are launching in honour of our 50th anniversary. As the event continues to gain momentum, so do our research efforts and the progress we've made in the search for a cure or control for CF. A child diagnosed in the 1960s was not expected to live long enough to attend kindergarten. The median age of survival of Canadians is among the highest in the world, at 49.7 years of age in 2012. The fight against cystic fibrosis is far from over. Every week in Canada, two children are diagnosed and one person dies from this disease. Of the Canadians who died in 2012, half were under the age of 32. There is no cure. We rely on the generous support of our volunteers, donors and partners in our shared mission to improve the lives of Canadians living with CF, and to ultimately find a cure or control for this devastating disease. Register, fundraise or donate to Shinerama today to help breathe life into the future of Canadians who are struggling to breathe every day.
