City to Surf Coming Soon

Chevron City To Surf is happening again this year in Karratha on 11 August and Perth on 25 August.

We already have some runners taking on the course and raising funds and awareness in support of the CF community.

One of our runners Stella said she “knows so many amazing young people battling this terrible illness, some who aren’t able to run, so I will be running for them”. Thank you Stella and happy training!

Early bird registrations end on Monday 17 June, so make sure you get in soon to receive your discounted registration and early bird City to Surf goodies. Click here to register now.

End of Financial Year Gift

The end of financial year is almost here. Now is the perfect time to make a tax-deductible gift that will help support people living with CF like Isobel and Ruby.

 With a relentless daily schedule of nebulisers, exercise and medication, these bubbly youngsters work together to stay on track with their treatment. Thank you to Isobel and Ruby for generously shared your story with us.

Visit our website to read more about Isobel and Ruby, and to make a gift before June 30. All donations of $2 or more are tax-deductible.

VAULT & Exchange Tower Spin Challenge

We would like to extend a huge thank you to the teams at Vault Fitness and Exchange Tower who spun themselves to an amazing total of $23,500, shared between nominated beneficiaries Cystic Fibrosis WA and the Steve Waugh Foundation.

Thanks also to our CF spin ambassador, Dylan and his family, for participating in the challenge, as well as President Caz Boyd for sharing her CF journey and accepting the cheque on behalf of CFWA.

Aaron's Crack a Cure Fundraiser

Aaron, whose younger brother lives with CF, recently undertook an impressive Crack a Cure fundraiser at his school.

He set himself a fundraising goal of $500, with a promise to crack an egg over his head for every $100 raised. But with the support of his friends and teachers at his school he's raised over $2,000. Incredible!

Congratulations Dr Larbalestier

Congratulations to Dr Rob Larbalestier, Head of Cardiothoracic Surgery at Fiona Stanley Hospital, who has been recently named as an Officer of Order of Australia (AO) in the Queen’s Birthday Honours.

Dr Larbalestier pioneered the Western Australian Heart and Lung Transplant Service in 1994. Previous to this, people requiring transplant surgery in WA had to travel interstate.
