Canadore Students #SHINEFORCF

Sep 8, 2016

(NORTH BAY, ONT.) – Canadore College students will be taking a shine to the community this Saturday.

Students will be around town shining anything from shoes to cars for donations to its Shinerama campaign.

“Shinerama is a long standing tradition here at Canadore,” said Sharmarke Mohamed, president of Canadore Students’ Council. “This disease is real for me and my fellow students. As young adults, we are one of the most affected populations. We’ve also learned about it first-hand from a recent graduate, who was a strong and engaged varsity athlete while he was here as a student. I hope this is the year we find a cure for him.”

Saturday’s public event is the second phase to CSC’s Shinerama efforts. On September 1 students held a BBQ fundraiser for Canadore employees that raised well over $600.

Event: Canadore Students’ Council Shinerama

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is the most common fatal genetic disease affecting Canadian children and young adults. Persistent and ongoing infection causes a deterioration of the lungs, which eventually causes death in the majority of people who have cystic fibrosis. It is estimated that one in every 3,600 children born in Canada has cystic fibrosis. Almost 4,000 Canadian children, adolescents, and adults with cystic fibrosis attend specialized CF clinics.

All monies raised will be remitted to Cystic Fibrosis Canada for research and care.
