Carleton students line the entrance of TD place collecting any last minute donations to support Cystic Fibrosis. Kick-off in T-35min. Third-year student, Morgan Lang says, "I shine because I think I'm incredibly lucky to be healthy and people living with cystic fibrosis have hardships that I don't experience so I want to make their lives better in any way I can."
It's kick-off and orange is scattered in the stadium. Orange being the colour shirt, today's Shinerama volunteers are wearing. One incentive for volunteering today was free entrance into the game provided by the Student Experience Office at Carleton. The cheque presentation ceremony starts during the half-time show.
Redblacks fans cheer at their team's first touchdown but the real cheering can be heard on the street or in the stands around the stadium from various groups of Carleton Shinerama students. Morgan Lang says, "I volunteer to help make a difference." Lang and several others can be heard in this video shining for their cause.
Half-time show begins: "Carleton raises record donations this year for Shinerama" echoes through the TD Place stadium as the announcer tells the crowd of the $60,000 dollars raised by Carleton students this year. All the money was given to Cystic Fibrosis Canada and will be used for research. This is almost double the amount raised last year which was around $37,000.
