Advocis (The Financial Advisors Association of Canada), est un partenaire actif de Fibrose kystique Canada depuis 1985, alors que l’organisme s’est associé à la Section Halifax. Depuis, cette collaboration s’est étendue à l’ensemble du pays et les membres d’Advocis ont recueilli plus de 5 millions de dollars pour la recherche, les soins cliniques et la défense des droits et des intérêts des personnes fibro-kystiques. Advocis, la plus ancienne et la plus importante association de conseillers en finance et de planificateurs bénévoles au Canada, compte plus de 40 sections et 11 000 membres. Chaque année, les sections d’Advocis organisent des tournois de golf et des dîners de charité et participent à la marche Destination guérisonMD afin de recueillir des fonds au profit de Fibrose kystique Canada.

Sixteen years ago, CARSTAR became a proud supporter of Cystic Fibrosis Canada after learning that a franchise partner’s granddaughter had been diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. With over 180 locations across Canada, CARSTAR is the national leader of auto collision and auto glass services. Since 1997, Cystic Fibrosis Canada has been their charity of choice. Through various fundraising events including the annual CARSTAR golf tournament and the annual Soaps it Up National Car Wash, CARSTAR and its franchise partners have donated over $2 million to Cystic Fibrosis Canada. Every year CARSTAR strives to increase the money it raises to invest in Cystic Fibrosis Canada’s life-saving research and advocacy programs. CARSTAR remains excited about this partnership and looks forward to the day when CF stands for cure found.
“We are proud of our franchise partners’ commitment to their communities and to helping Canadians who live with cystic fibrosis. Every time we raise awareness and money for cystic fibrosis we are motivated by our commitment to finding a cure.”
Lisa Mercanti-Ladd, Executive Vice-President of CARSTAR Automotive Canada.
