It's time to shine North Bay


​Get ready North Bay, students at Nipissing University are all set to shine the city in and battle against Cystic Fibrosis.

The Nipissing University Student Union (NUSU) are gearing up for their annual Shinerama campaign. On Saturday, September 5, students, or shiners, will be at twelve locations across North Bay, Sturgeon Falls, Powassan, and Callander.

At these locations, students will be washing cars, shining shoes, helping carry groceries and whatever else they can do to add some shine to North Bay and its citizens while raising money for research to defeat cystic fibrosis. This year’s fundraising goal is $30,000.

Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a fatal inherited disease that affects mainly the lungs and the digestive system. About one in every 2,500 children born in Canada has CF. Thanks to the advances in research and clinical care, more and more kids with CF are surviving into adulthood. In 1960, children born with cystic fibrosis rarely lived four years; today, in Canada, people with CF live into their thirties and beyond.

Nipissing University has been participating in Shinerama since the inception of its Charter in 1992, and, has helped raised more than $300,000​
