Nursing student exceeds fundraising goal for Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation

Nicole Fortier (4th term nursing student and Shinerama Coordinator) has surpassed her campaign goal of $25,000 with $30,300 raised so far for the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. She has been supported in a number of organized fundraisers by her fellow nursing students.

“I was so pleased to present the School of Nursing with the Shinerama Faculty Cup, recognizing nursing as the strongest fundraising faculty for UBC’s 2010 Shinerama campaign,” says Fortier. “Because of their time and efforts we are now one step closer to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis.”

Shinerama, Canada’s largest post-secondary fundraiser, involves students from nearly 60 university and college campuses across Canada and to date, has raised more than $17.5 million.
