About Shinerama

Shinerama is Canada’s largest post-secondary fundraiser in support of Cystic Fibrosis Canada. Over 35,000 student volunteers from 45 Canadian universities and colleges across the country come together every year to make a difference in the lives of those battling cystic fibrosis (CF).

Since 1964, Shinerama has raised approximately $27 million dollars for life-saving CF research and care. As the campaign continues to gain momentum, so do our research efforts and the progress we have made in the search for a cure or control for CF. A child diagnosed in the 1960s was not expected to live long enough to attend kindergarten. As of 2016, the median age of survival of Canadians is among the highest in the world, at 53.3 years of age.

The support from Shinerama schools and students over the past 54 years has been instrumental to advancing the battle against this devastating disease. We would like to thank all past and present Shiners who have and continue to put in hard work to make CF stand for “Cure Found”.
