It's been working for 47 years, Canada's largest post-secondary school fundraiser. Last year, 35,000 students, 60 university and college campuses across Canada raised $1 million for the first time for cystic fibrosis research. This year's goal for Canada is $1,035,000.
Here at MUN, School of Nursing students Rebekah King and Robyn Wrice are involved with Shinerama this year. Rebekah King is coordinator for the event and Robyn Wrice the assistant coordinator. Their goal is to raise $26,000.
“This is my first time with Shinerama. I got involved through Rebekah as she knew my passion for CNSA (Canadian Nursing Students’ Association) and knew I would not be involved with CNSA this upcoming year,” said Robyn. “She was impressed with the dedication I put into CNSA and approached me personally and asked if I would run for the assistant coordiantor position. It is a great cause and money is needed in order for the research to keep continuing.”
Shine day runs out of the University Centre all day. You can go online also and donate to help MUN reach their goal:
