Canadore Students Taking a Shine to North Bay

Sep 7, 2017 | Canadore College

(NORTH BAY, ONT.) – Hundreds of Canadore College students will be taking a shine to the streets of North Bay this Saturday.

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

“Shinerama is one of the mainstays of our frosh week every single year,” said Robin Chokomolin, president of Canadore Students’ Council. “We’ve been having such a great week, getting to know one another, and focusing on having a lot of fun. Rallying our enthusiasm and energy after a great week of building strong connections with each other is the perfect finale to a great week.”

Chokomolin thanks area businesses for providing designated space for CSC’s #SHINEFORCF activities. She also invites the population to learn more about Canadore students and how they see themselves as a part of the broader community while they benefit from the shiny effects of the fundraiser.

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.
