Shari & Matt Trekking Nepal for CF
At the end of last year, siblings Shari Douglas and Mathew O’Brien completed a six-day trek in Nepal, raising awareness and over $11,700 for cystic fibrosis (CF)!
Their inspiration for the challenge is a childhood friend who has CF. Shari spoke to the Albany Advertiser before the trek and said, “Growing up we have learnt and witnessed the difficulties he [their friend] has had to go through so this is very important to us”.
Shari has been a long-time supporter of Cystic Fibrosis WA and this is the second trek she and Matt have completed. They also did a Kokoda trek in 2016 with their sister, Nicole, which also raised significant funds and awareness for CF.
Thank you to Shari, Matt and all their supporters!
