SBC Students Fight Against Cystic Fibrosis


Despite the chilly weather, SBC students were out on the streets last September 13, 2018 for Shinerama 2018. They raised $4,300 for Cystic Fibrosis Canada. 

The top fundraisers for this event are:

  1. Erin Newton and Natasha Halvorson
  2. Brittney Ginther, Jacquelyn Buller, Maryclear Dator, Krystina Lensen, and Blayne Gallagher
  3. Brittany Minty, Coral Kreiser, and Abby Ridgewell

Congratulations, volunteers!

What is Cystic Fibrosis?

Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is the most common life threatening genetic disease in Canada. CF affects many of the body’s systems, including lungs and digestion. Improved medication and treatments have seen life expectancy extended considerably. 

Cystic Fibrosis is an inherited genetic condition that babies are born with, and both parents have to carry the gene. 

Most people will require treatment (inhalers, chest physiotherapy, and antibiotics) on a regular daily basis and some may require aerosol medications to assist breathing. Most patients will eventually require a lung transplant.

Shinerama is Canada's largest post-secondary fundraiser in support of Cystic Fibrosis, and Saskatoon Business College has participated in Shinerama for over 30 years.

We thank everyone who volunteered for this important cause, and we look forward to next year's Shinerama.
