Calgary, Alberta -- April 16, 2018 -- CARSTAR Canada and the Calgary Flames Foundation, in partnership with TJ Brodie – a longstanding advocate in the fight against cystic fibrosis – recently presented a $60,000 donation to Cystic Fibrosis Canada from its Skate In Strides program.
“We’re so grateful for the terrific partnership we have with the Calgary Flames Foundation and TJ Brodie, as we all fight against cystic fibrosis together,” says Michael Piper, zone director of Western Canada at CARSTAR. “It’s easy for fans to get behind Skate In Strides because they can represent their favourite team, while simultaneously raising valuable funds for an important cause.”
With every Skate In Strides custom hat purchased, TJ Brodie and the Calgary Flames Foundation match the earnings. All proceeds go directly to Cystic Fibrosis Canada, who uses these funds for cystic fibrosis research, care and advocacy.
According to CARSTAR, Brodie has been extremely impactful in using his platform to raise awareness for cystic fibrosis.
Skate in Strides gear is still available on Fan Attic, at flamesport.com.
