Local student taking part in large fundraiser

Shinerama is Canada’s largest post-secondary fundraiser in support of Cystic Fibrosis Canada. Over 35,000 student volunteers from 50 Canadian universities and colleges across the country come together every year to make a difference in the lives of those battling cystic fibrosis (CF). Student volunteers all over Canada are shining shoes, flipping burgers, washing cars and doing whatever it takes to raise crucial funding to fight cystic fibrosis. This national event puts the “fun” in fundraising!

This year local University of Saskatchewan Physiotherapy master’s student, Ashley Trampe has joined the team to help raise funds and bring an end to Cystic Fibrosis.

“I am very proud to be a part of the 52nd team that the College of Physiotherapy has participated in Shinearama. Cystic Fibrosis treatment and management is a part of the job for every physiotherapist.” states Trampe. “I also have the long-time connection to Cystic Fibrosis with my dad (life member Bruce Trampe) and The Pas Kinsmen. I have helped with Kinsmen events since I was little. Kin Canada has made huge strides in finding a cure for Cystic Fibrosis and this is a perfect marriage.”

Every year the Pas Kinsmen fundraise and donate to Cystic Fibrosis through their Goals for CF program with the OCN Blizzard and in the past our Drive One 4UR Community with the Rotary Club and Northland Ford.   This year club member Danny Halpin also took on a Marathon for CF and raised $4000 in additional funds.

“As a father and a Life Member of The Pas Kinsmen club it makes me so proud to see my daughter doing what she can do to help find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis” states Bruce Trampe of The Pas Kinsmen, “Ashley has had Kin around her for most of her life and been personally involved in many of our community projects. She has learned that individually or as a group we CAN and WILL make a difference!”
