CARSTAR to Raise Money for Cystic Fibrosis
May 2, 2018—CARSTAR stores are preparing to support cystic fibrosis research for Shine Month in June.
The CARSTAR and cystic fibrosis affiliation all started when Victoria, granddaughter of Harry Belmont, previous CARSTAR Mississauga Hawkestone owner, received a cystic fibrosis diagnosis in 1997. At that time, the life expectancy of someone living with cystic fibrosis was 30.
Over the course of 20 years, CARSTAR has helped to raise over $3 million for Cystic Fibrosis Canada.Now, the life expectancy of someone living with cystic fibrosis is now 47 in the U.S.
CARSTAR will kick-off fundraising in the U.S through the Great Strides Walk in the month of May.
