Shine Day

SHINE DAY 2018 is Monday September 3rd!

Our 2018 Shine Day will be September 3rd, 2018. Mount students, have we got an amazing day for you!

After your first breakfast on campus, you’ll hear from Emma Philpitt at 11 AM. She’s a young person not much older than yourself who is a cystic fibrosis survivor. Her story is an amazing one: despite all the challenges she faces everyday living with CF, she’s never let it stop her from being active and living life to the fullest.

Pay close attention to her story, and the facts about cystic fibrosis she shares in her talk–they’ll come in handy later in the day!

At 2PM, we’ll meet at the McCain Centre to kick off our SHINE CHASE!

We’ll give you a Shine Kit, and you’ll head out in teams to Shinerama fundraisers across downtown Halifax. You’ll complete challenges, learn about Shinerama and cystic fibrosis (this is where Emma’s facts come in!), and raise money for cystic fibrosis and awareness about Shinerama and the disease it’s fighting every step of the way.

There will be prizes awarded to the top teams!

When you return, you’ll be greeted by a Shine Fest. The kind folks from Cove Kombucha are bringing their truck so you can cool off with some kombucha on tap, and tell your friends all about your adventures before getting ready for dinner.

MSVU Shinerama’s goal is to raise $2,500 for cystic fibrosis research and care. Are YOU ready to SHINE FOR TIME for CF patients?
