Cystic Fibrosis Australia (CFA) has a long history of dedicated fundraisers who have set themselves a challenge to do their bit to change the world.

By choosing to fundraise for CFA, you are choosing to support research, you are choosing to help us extend life expectancy for people with cystic fibrosis (CF), and you are choosing to help us fight for access to the best and most current treatments.


You are choosing to support our researchers until CF stands for Cure Found. We need your help.


Our Community Fundraisers are everyday people, who want to make a difference.


Their goal is simple – raise awareness and raise vital funds for our cause. 

Impact Unleashed: Community Fundraisers Transforming Lives

In 2023, Layne Storrier accomplished an extraordinary feat by completing 36 consecutive half Ironmans to raise awareness and funds for Cystic Fibrosis Australia.


Beyond the awe-inspiring nature of his achievement, Layne’s effort underscores the profound impact that Community Fundraising can have on the CF Community, emphasizing that every contribution, regardless of its scale, makes a significant difference.

How can you make a difference?


Have your own burning ideas you want to bring to life? Then why not create your own fundraising event or challenge! Some of our previous supporters have:

  • Red Day Fundraiser: Designate a day as “Red Day” for cystic fibrosis awareness. Encourage community members to wear red, and host events like red-themed bake sales or walks.

  • Run a fundraising Day eg T20 cricket day, Gold Day
  • Had their body waxed (ouch!), or shaved their head for donations!
  • CF Awareness Walk/Run: Organize a walk or run event to raise awareness for cystic fibrosis. Participants can seek sponsorships, and the event can include educational materials about CF.

  • Cycling for CF: Organize a cycling event where participants can ride a certain distance or duration to raise funds. This is a great way to promote exercise and community involvement.

  • Applied to their company for a grant
  • Cupcakes for a Cure: Host a cupcake sale or baking competition where participants create and sell cupcakes. 

  • Held a sausage sizzle at the local Bunnings
  • Virtual Fitness Challenge: Organize a virtual fitness challenge where participants commit to a certain number of workout sessions over a set period. Participants can gather sponsors for their fitness journey.

  • Put up a Christmas lights display with a donation box
