This edition we have a lot of updates to share with you from the Adelaide research team we support, but before we get started, as always, we just want to say thank you to the Cure4CF community!
We have wonderful friends right across Australia who are jumping on board to join us in being part of the for cure cystic fibrosis, and we really could not be more grateful. You may have seen the Robins family in Queensland who ran a social media campaign 'Go Red For Feb', and posted a red themed photo to raise awareness and funds for research to cure cystic fibrosis each day during the month of February. Team Robins raised an incredible $2,500 to support Cure4CF.
Susan Gascoine, whose granddaughter is living with cystic fibrosis, has set herself an enormous challenge of walking from Renmark to Adelaide during April and May. Susan is aiming to raise $10,000 which she will share between Cure4CF and CFSA. We are in absolute awe of Susan and look forward to welcoming her at the finish line.

Our wonderful friends at the Geelong CF Support Group are holding a Gala Ball on the 21st May to raise money for Cure4CF Foundation and are doing a tremendous job pulling the event together (they have even had to move the date to allow for more people to attend!). If you would like to find out more about their event click here.
On Saturday 28 May a formal charity event dinner, the 65 Roses Evening Event, will take place at the Marquee Ballroom, Sfera's Park Suite and Convention Centre. Part proceeds will support Cure4CF Foundation, so if you are looking for a fabulous evening out with friends of family we recommend you buy your tickets before they sell out.
And we had some lovely ladies lace up their runners and raise money for Cure4CF during the Bay-City Fun Run, held in Adelaide on Sunday 20 March. One of these heroes was Dimity Bullen-Nicholas who is living with cystic fibrosis, and had never dreamt of running a race like the Bay-City before. Dimity put in some hard yards to tackle the challenge and has inspired us all by not only completing the 12km, but with her friend Sam, has raised over $1,500 to support Cure4CF.
These are just some of the incredibly inspiring people who are helping Cure4CF Foundation fulfil our mission to be part of the cure for cystic fibrosis. If you have been thinking about getting involved we urge you to take action today, the cure for CF cannot wait. We would love to hear from you, visit our website www.cure4cf.org, email us firstname.lastname@example.org or call on 1300 131 480 and we look forward to welcoming you on our journey to a cure.
From all of us at Cure4CF Foundation we thank you for your continued support.
