CARSTAR Earns Award for Charitable Endeavor
April 9, 2019—CARSTAR has earned the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's national rising star award.
The Rising Star award is given annually to a corporate supporter who has demonstrated increased or expanded participation and fundraising efforts for cystic fibrosis (CF) in the year. The award was established in 2010.
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation presented CARSTAR with the Rising Star Award at the Foundation’s recent 2019 Volunteer Leadership Conference.
CARSTAR began fundraising for cystic fibrosis in Canada over 20 years ago, when a franchise partner’s granddaughter received a cystic fibrosis diagnosis. Since then, the CARSTAR commitment to its charity of choice has only grown, as have the funds raised. Passing the $3 million threshold for funds raised for Cystic Fibrosis Canada in 2016, CARSTAR now has nearly $3.7 million raised in Canada and looks to continue accelerating its fundraising momentum in the U.S.
