What is Shinerama?
Shinerama is one of Canada’s largest post-secondary fundraisers involving almost 60 university and colleges across Canada. All proceeds from our fundraisers towards Cystic Fibrosis Canada and are put towards Cystic Fibrosis research and care.
Cystic fibrosis is the most common fatal genetic disease affecting Canadian children and young adults. In 2014, the estimated median age of survival of Canadians with cystic fibrosis was 51 years old. For every year that Shinerama has been around, approximately 10 months have been added to the median age of survival. This can be directly related back to the money raised through Shinerama, which helped fund research to find the gene that is responsible for causing Cystic Fibrosis.
This year our goal is to raise $50,000 for Cystic Fibrosis Canada. Please see our current fundraisers below to see how you can get involved or donate. Carleton University Shinerama volunteers will be fundraising for Shinerama Day on September 8, 2017.
