CARSTAR states that its stores from across the U.S. and Canada are leading the way in supporting cystic fibrosis research, care and advocacy. The CARSTAR and cystic fibrosis affiliation all started when Victoria, granddaughter of Harry Belmont, previous CARSTAR Mississauga Hawkestone owner, received a cystic fibrosis diagnosis in 1997. At that time, the life expectancy of someone living with cystic fibrosis was 30.

Over the course of the more than 20-year partnership, Canadian franchise partners, vendors and community supporters helped CARSTAR raise over $3 million for Cystic Fibrosis Canada. The U.S. CARSTAR franchise partners joined the effort to support cystic fibrosis research and treatment in 2017. CARSTAR says that these funds make a tremendous impact, proof being that the life expectancy of someone living with cystic fibrosis is now 53.3 in Canada and 47 in the U.S.
