A community social event that focuses on fundraising for Cystic Fibrosis(CF). Students will first learn from an individual living with CF during breakfast at the dining hall to educate them on the disease, the reason why we are donating, and to spark motivation for the day. 

Then we will go to a local spot’s parking lot and split into teams where students will make signs, carry donation boxes, and sing jingles/find creative ways to ask people to donate. Students will hand out QR codes and wear their Orientation shirts to show Lakehead pride.
