MAKING AN IMPACT
Fix Auto USA is committed to supporting the communities we work and live in, including our charity of choice, fighting cystic fibrosis. Cystic fibrosis is the most common fatal genetic disease that mainly affects the digestive system and lungs. There is no cure. To help fight cystic fibrosis, Donate here.
In May of 2020, Fix Auto USA joined the Driven Brands’ network of aftermarket automotive collision repair franchise and began our journey learning more about cystic fibrosis. After connecting with a local chapter, we realized how close cystic fibrosis is to home and how our fundraising efforts can make a difference for those living with CF in the local communities that we serve.
For the Driven Brands’ family, cystic fibrosis fundraising began over 20 years ago when a franchise partner’s granddaughter received a cystic fibrosis diagnosis. Since then, the commitment to cystic fibrosis has grown to the Collision group’s charity of choice across North America, supporting Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and Cystic Fibrosis Canada. With franchise partners hosting golf tournaments, participating in their local CF charity walks or donating directly at our annual conferences, Driven Brands has raised $4 million+, since its initial partnership began. With no plans to slow down, our collision brands are committed to supporting this cause, hoping to help change the meaning of CF to cure found.
Summer is “Shine Season” for the Fix Auto USA network. This is a time when franchise partners from across North America will begin to dedicate some time to fundraise for our charity of choice. Getting creative with its fundraising initiatives, the Fix Auto family will be rolling out a series of initiatives through BBQ, walks, and car washes in an effort to raise valuable funds and awareness for cystic fibrosis.
GREAT STRIDES WALK
Great Strides is the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s largest fundraising event of the year, with over 125,000 walkers participating across 400 walk locations. Aiming to make it a fun event for the whole family, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation goes out of its way to host its walk on a scenic route or a fund landmark. Some chapters have games along their route, musical performances at the end, a BBQ for walkers, and even toys for kids. Fix Auto Franchise Partners will create teams and participate in their local walks throughout the year. Visit the national Fix Auto USA team page to find a participating location near you.
