My Story

I am taking part in Blackmores Sydney Running Festival 2018 to raise much needed funds for Cystic Fibrosis Australia. Their work is really important, and I want to do what I can to help. But there is only so much I can do on my own. You can help too, by donating to my page. Any amount you can give makes a difference! You can also support me by encouraging others to get involved, too. Please email the link to my page to your friends and family, or share it on social media. Thank you for your generosity and support -- it means a lot to me. Together we can help Cystic Fibrosis Australia create the world we want to see.

About my team: fancycoupleinaustralia

Hi there! Barbara and I wish to raise much needed funds for Cystic Fibrosis Australia by participating at the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival 2018. Barbara will perform on the 10k Bridge Run and I will challenge myself on the Marathon ! Barbara has a keen interest in Cystic Fibrosis since she was involved in cystic fibrosis research during her PhD thesis. Therefore, the work of Cystic Fibrosis Australia is really important to us and we want to do what we can to support them. You can help Cystic Fibrosis Australia, too! Please donate and share this page. Any amount is welcome and needed. All together, we can make a difference ! Thank you for your generosity and support!

About my cause: Cystic Fibrosis Australia

Cystic Fibrosis (CF) primarily affects the lungs and digestive system because of a malfunction in the exocrine system, responsible for producing saliva, sweat, tears and mucus.

There is currently no cure. People with CF develop an abnormal amount of excessively thick and sticky mucus within the lungs, airways and the digestive system. The mucus causes impairment of the digestive functions of the pancreas and traps bacteria in the lungs resulting in recurrent infections which lead to irreversible damage. Lung failure is the major cause of death for someone with CF.

We advocate on behalf of our members to gain better access to services, obtain information or resources. On a larger scale we have been involved in several national campaigns to increase the rights of all people with cystic fibrosis.
