ABOUT THE WALK

On Sunday, May 29, 2016 the CARSTAR Walk to Make Cystic Fibrosis History hosted thousands of participants across Canada at local sites within their communities to celebrate our fundraising efforts and imagine a world without CF. This year, our walkers raised over $3.5 million and counting toward cystic fibrosis research, care and advocacy. 

We rely on the generous support of our volunteers, donors and partners in our shared mission to improve the lives of Canadians living with cystic fibrosis, and ultimately realize our vision of a world without cystic fibrosis. Because of your donations, we continue to advance the battle against this devastating disease. Together we are carving new paths from research lab discoveries to the development of new treatments, and investing in a national quality improvement initiative for CF care.

Of the Canadians with cystic fibrosis who died in 2013, half were under 35 years of age. Lung transplantation is the only definitive treatment option for cystic fibrosis patients with end-stage lung disease, but it is still not a cure. Cumulatively, CF patients attended over 16,500 clinic visits in 2013
