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.

Foundation-Sponsored Indoor and Outdoor Events and Gatherings
The Foundation is closely following the evolving coronavirus outbreak. We will continue to monitor coronavirus guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and assess whether we need to change any scheduled events.
To reduce the risk of getting and spreading germs at CF Foundation-sponsored events, we ask that everyone follow basic best practices by regularly cleaning your hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel, covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your inner elbow, and maintaining a safe 6-foot distance from anyone with a cold or infection. Medical evidence shows that germs may spread among people with CF through direct and indirect contact, as well as through droplets that travel short distances when a person coughs or sneezes. These germs can lead to worsening symptoms and speed decline in lung function.
To further help reduce the risk of cross-infection, the Foundation's attendance policy recommends inviting only one person with CF to attend the indoor portion of a Foundation-sponsored event at a specific time. For the outdoor portion, the Foundation recommends that all people with CF maintain a safe 6-foot distance from each other at all times.
