CARSTAR Raises Milestone Amount for Cystic Fibrosis
July 8, 2019—CARSTAR, which dedicates every June to fundraising for cystic fibrosis research, advocacy and care, raised over $100,000 in 2019.
Known as, ‘Shine Month’ at CARSTAR, this is a time when locations across North America dedicate time and funds to the fight against cystic fibrosis (CF). CARSTAR franchise partners host car washes, participate in the Walk to Make Cystic Fibrosis History or walk in Great Strides to help engage their team and community in raising funds and awareness for CF.
CARSTAR began fundraising for cystic fibrosis (CF) 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 increased. Passing the $3 million threshold for funds raised for Cystic Fibrosis Canada in 2016, CARSTAR now has over $3.7 million raised as U.S. franchise partners have joined the cause.
