Eighteen 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 230 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 $2.5 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. A great example of their long standing support to Cystic Fibrosis is portrayed through their national commitment as title sponsor of the “Walk to Make Cystic Fibrosis History”.
