Great Strides is the CF Foundation’s
largest fundraising event and we are walking as a company to help find a cure
for CF! CARSTAR began its
fundraising for cystic fibrosis in Canada over 20 years ago, after a franchise
partner’s granddaughter was diagnosed with the disease. Over the years,
franchise partners became motivated to fundraise for this cause after hearing
stories of local children and families in their area, affected by cystic
fibrosis. Thanks to the commitment of our network, we’ve raised over $3 million
for Cystic Fibrosis Canada.
Now, our fight against
cystic fibrosis is a North American effort. With over 280 locations across the
U.S., CARSTAR can support the fight against CF on a national scale. We would like to invite you to join us. You’ll be helping to
achieve our national corporate goal while having fun in your locations/shops,
and engaging locally with your community. We look forward to growing funds raised for cystic
fibrosis, and increasing the reach of Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s
life-changing research, care and advocacy.
Thank you for walking today, and adding tomorrows…

Important note on Attendance at Foundation Events:
Infections can exacerbate CF symptoms and worsen lung function, so we ask attendees at Foundation-sponsored events to observe the following best practices to reduce the risk of germ transmission:
Regularly wash hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel.
Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your inner elbow.
Maintain a safe 6-foot distance from anyone with a cold or infection.
To further reduce the risk of cross-infection, the Foundation’s attendance policy recommends that all people with CF maintain a safe 6-foot distance from each other at all times while attending an outdoor Foundation-sponsored event. All Great Strides walks are non-smoking events.
