Shinerama at Queen's University

Drumroll Please…

We are so proud to announce Queen’s 2014 Shinerama total has surpassed our goal of $75,000, and climbed to unthinkable heights with a grand total of $93,337.57! That’s a ton of money!

We would like to thank all of those who helped us with this year’s campaign, including the OC’s, Gaels, first years, and many more! This money is going to go a long way in advancing CF research and treatments and bring us to our overall goal of eventually finding a cure!

Thank YOU!

It’s hard to believe that our campaign for this year is coming to an end!

This year, we have raised $71,294.70 for Shinerama!!!! This breaks all records that we have ever had!  

It also brings our entire amount raised across all of the years that Shinerama has been at Queen’s to over 1 MILLION DOLLARS raised!

Thank you so much for your support and we could not be more excited!

Hey hey, ho ho, Cystic Fibro has got to go!


Here at Queen’s we are all pretty excited to campaign for Shinerama, but what about other schools? Turns out schools across Canada are just as passionate to work with and raise funds for Shinerama and Cystic Fibrosis Canada!
