65 Roses

The National Cystic Fibrosis 65 Roses Campaign is hosted during the month of May.  Each year the National Office in conjunction with its State and Territory associations host many awareness initiatives and fundraising events through May.   

For the last couple of years we have encouraged people to participate in a challenge themed around the number 65.  Supporters have embraced this concept with many wonderful ideas for challenges.  

We are pleased with the success of this year’s campaign and are excitedly planning 65 Roses 2015.

Take the 65 Roses Challenge for Cystic Fibrosis!    

Cystic Fibrosis Australia, including the National Office, State and Territory organisations will be working together during the month of May to raise money for vital services, programs, advocacy and research that helps to improve and extend the lives of Australians living with cystic fibrosis. 

To support 65 Roses, organise a challenge themed around the number 65 to help us raise awareness of the challenges those living with CF face every day.  You can create a fundraising page by visiting the 65 roses website.

Some ‘65’ Themed Challenge ideas are:

  • Cooking a meal for 65 friends and ask them each to donate $65 to attend
  • Walk 65 kms during the month of May
  • Auction off a ‘perk’ at your workplace such as parking for 6.5 days
  • Create a mini marathon: swim 65 laps, run 6.5 km, ride 65 kms
  • Have a family movie marathon starting at 6.50pm
  • Do a coffee run and charge everyone $6.50 per cup
  • Ask your company to donate $6.50, $65 or $650 for each staff that donates 

This year, Cystic Fibrosis Australia has 65 Roses merchandise boxes available for sale.  Each box contains 65 Roses branded pens, 4GB USB sitcks and key ring torches.  Please contact the National Office on (02) 8883 4477 if you would like to assist CFA with selling these items to raise money and awareness for CF.

Your support and contribution will allow us to continue to fulfil our goal of enabling people with Cystic Fibrosis to achieve their full potential, inspite of this debilitating and life shortening disease.
