Students Shine to Fight Cystic Fibrosis

Hundreds of Shinerama Events Across Canada

Tuesday, August 19, 2013 (TORONTO, ON) – More than 35,000 students from over 60 Canadian colleges and universities across Canada will again join the fight against cystic fibrosis by participating in the 49th annual Shinerama campaign in support of Cystic Fibrosis Canada. During August and September, students will be active in their communities raising funds for critical CF research and care, demonstrating their commitment to help find a cure or control for this fatal disease.
 
"In the 1960s, children diagnosed with cystic fibrosis did not even live long enough to attend kindergarten. Today, many of them are able to go to the very universities and colleges that have been fighting for them for almost 50 years through Shinerama," said Maureen Adamson, President and CEO, Cystic Fibrosis Canada. "There is still so much more to do. Every week in Canada two children are diagnosed and one person dies of the disease."
