During May, the national month of awareness for cystic fibrosis (CF), F45 Willetton focused their efforts on raising awareness and funds in support of families affected by CF. They first learnt about Cystic Fibrosis WA through one of their members Richard, who sits on the CFWA board.
They hosted several events through the month, including a stall at the Festival of Movement and a dress red day where CFWA’s president Caz Boyd spoke about her journey and experiences of living with CF. They finished the month off by participating in the 2018 HBF Run for a Reason as a team on Sunday 27 May. Their team of runners and supporters raised $1,868 throughout the month and shared their success proudly on their social media.
They were among over 35 teams and individuals fundraising for CFWA through the HBF Run and together all our runners raised an incredible $22,980! This will go towards important services to help children and adults living with CF in WA and will support critical research funding.
If you’re feeling inspired and are looking to participate in a fun day like this before the end of the year, registrations are open for the 2018 City to Surf, which will be on Sunday 12 August.
