About 65 Kms for 65 Roses

The month of May is 65 Roses month, a time to unite and raise awareness for Cystic Fibrosis. 2018 will see Cystic Fibrosis Australia CEO Nettie Burke take on her own challenge and she wants you to get involved. 

Walk it, run it, skip it, jump it. However you choose, just pledge to complete it. Ask your friends, family and colleagues to join you, or support you by making a donation to support research and advocacy.

About 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.
