In support of its cystic fibrosis charitable partners, Fix Auto USA is helping to bring cystic fibrosis to the forefront this summer by raising awareness to this genetic disease.
The cystic fibrosis affiliation all started when the granddaughter of a Driven Brands franchise partner received a cystic fibrosis diagnosis in 1997. At that time, the life expectancy of someone living with cystic fibrosis was 30.
Over the last 20 plus years, franchise partners, vendors and community supporters have teamed up to help raise over $4 million for cystic fibrosis research, care, and advocacy. These funds make a tremendous impact. Now, the life expectancy of someone living with cystic fibrosis is over 50 in North America.
Fix Auto USA is about to kick-off its first annual Shine Season, which will take place from June through September. Shine Season will be a time when Fix Auto USA franchise partners and their Driven Brands Collision counterparts from across North America will come together to help fundraise for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
We have challenged our Fix Auto network to raise over $75,000 for the fight against cystic fibrosis this year.
We encourage you all to get involved in these fundraising efforts. You can easily start by taking a moment to create or join our Fix Auto USA Great Strides team by signing up here. Click here to donate to cystic fibrosis.
