The Shine Rally is a really important event that introduces students to passionate organization that is Shinerama while providing them with key information about Cystic Fibrosis. This fantastic event showcases some amazing speakers who have had real experience in dealing with CF. Whether they have it themselves or someone close to them, these speakers all tell powerful stories of their experiences and battles with CF. This provides incoming students with the background of not only our Shinerama campaign at Queen’s University but the importance of this cause across Canadian schools in its effort to raise money to find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis.
The Shine Rally, although a step back from the highly spirited nature of many events, it serves an important role in Orientation Week at Queen’s! Through the inspiring speeches of the guest speakers and those who coordinate the event, the Shine Rally provides hope for the future, a new future where people with Cystic Fibrosis can live normally, a future with a cure. This event is an opportunity for students to rally together and show excitement about finding a cure! Let CF stand for Cure Found!
