In FY2017 we raised almost $37k for Cystic Fibrosis Community Care. These funds were used to help fund a range of programmes supporting families affected by Cystic Fibrosis and research initiatives.
Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is the most common, recessive genetically acquired, life-shortening chronic illness affecting young Australians today.
It primarily affects the lungs and the digestive system, however, it also affects a number of other organs and systems.
Complications increase with age, requiring ever increasing levels of (self) care and support. There is currently no cure. From birth, a person with CF undergoes constant medical treatments and physiotherapy. Lung failure is the major cause of death for someone with CF.
On average one in 25 people carry the CF gene (most of whom are unaware they are carriers).
Cystic Fibrosis Community Care (CFCC) is the peak community not-for-profit organisation working with and for people with CF right across the East Coast of Australia. Its mission is to assist everyone affected by CF to be well and live fuller lives. It provides information, support and guidance to people living with CF and their families. It advocates for services and systems that support the CF community and seeks to raise awareness, understanding and funds for services and research. Over 80% of CFV income is from fundraising.
All online donations for the 2018 Peaks4CF 4065 Challenge go directly to Cystic Fibrosis Community Care.
Peaks4CF was founded in 2016, inspired by Maya Dalton who was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis shortly after her birth in 2014. On the 12th March 2017 seven heroes, "The Original Seven", tackled the Peaks Challenge in Falls Creek. One of the toughest single day bike rides in the world, the ride covered 235km and over 4000m of climbing. The riders, family and friends together raised almost $37k for Cystic Fibrosis Community Care.
The legend of Peaks4CF was born.
