This event has grown and changed so much in the last few years all with the same thing in mind - helping people who suffer from CF like my own little girl Skyla. As time has gone by I have realised what is truly needed here in our community for children with Cystic Fibrosis.
This year all funds raised will stay here in the Townsville and in conjunction with the CF physio team, nurses and doctors at the Townsville hospital I will be using all funds raised to improve our children’s time away from home. Whether it be new physiotherapy equipment or entertainment for the kids during their long stays in hospital, I have so many wonderful ideas and hope I can raise as much money as possible to enable all this to come to fruition.
This event started here in Townsville three years ago after I saw what four other amazing CF mums were doing on the Sunshine coast, and again this year we will be joining the sunshine coast teams for our 65 km's for CF 'Run for SKYLA '. Teams of four will each run 65 km's (16.25 km's per person) for Cystic Fibrosis on tread mills at The Zoo health and Fitness in Townsville on Sunday the 21st of June.
This is to raise not only funds but much needed awareness of this very debilitating condition. Cystic Fibrosis or CF is a serious genetic condition affecting the respiratory, digestive and reproductive systems and CF is the most common recessive genetic condition affecting more than 3000 Australians. It affects 1 in 2500 Australian children born each year and there is no cure.
So help me find one.....
