More information about Cystic Fibrosis and the Shine Campaign:

For over 2 decades, Carleton has been raising money for Cystic Fibrosis Canada through its Shinerama partnership. Shinerama encourages Universities across Canada to partner with a non-for-profit organization to raise awareness and education for its cause.

During the month of August, Carleton will be hosting an Active August through its Shine campaign to encourage everyone to learn more about Cystic Fibrosis and raise money for this charity. Stay tuned for our fitness challenges and raffle prizes later this summer.

What is Cystic Fibrosis:

Cystic Fibrosis is the most fatal genetic disease in Canada. There is no cure. About 4,300 Canadians have this disease. Cystic Fibrosis (CF) causes various effects on the body, mainly the digestive system and lungs. The severity of this disease differs from person to person, however, is a progressive disease leading to death with an ongoing infection in the lungs leading to loss of lung function. On average, persons with CF only have 65% lung function. The average life expectancy of a person living with CF is 55.

Other complications with people with CF can include malnutrition due to the inability to digest fats and proteins as well as vitamin deficiencies, diabetes, liver disease and sinus infections. A person with CF can spend hours every single day managing their disease. This could include chest physiotherapy, weight/nutrition management and clinic appointments.

The national foundation was established in 1960 by a family whose child had Cystic Fibrosis. CF is one of the world’s top 3 charitable organizations committed to finding a cure for CF.

Where your money goes: 

Money raised goes towards Cystic Fibrosis Canada. Your donation goes directly towards the improvements and life changing access/medications required for ongoing research, treatment and advocacy of Cystic Fibrosis. This means your charitable donation goes towards advancing life-saving research on priority health needs, improving the quality of clinical care and treatment and development across Canada for those living with CF.

Donation Receipts will not be provided for this event.
