Lives unaffected by cystic fibrosis

Our Community Fundraisers


What is #42forCF?
#42forCF was one of our proudest moments and most lucrative fundraisers of 2020. The full Marathon, conceived of and completed by Bradley Dryburgh, one of our homegrown CF heroes, was something of a watershed moment. 

On the 14th of May, Bradley Dryburgh, a young CF advocate and one of our most active CF ambassadors, will once again run a full marathon! Bradley is on a mission to prove that people with CF can live a life without limits. His regimen of fitness and healthy living inspires CF kids and adults across the country who look up to Bradley. Just recently he was interviewed on Channel 7’s ‘Sunrise’ about his work for the CF cause!

Now is the time to step up to the starter’s blocks and help get CF Awareness over the line. You can join Bradley in spirit for his gruelling marathon simply by getting out in the sunshine for a run (or even a long walk!) in your own neighbourhood. 

Film your run or take photos and post to Instagram, Facebook or Twitter under the hashtag ‘#42forCF’. Do this at any time on or before May 14th to help Bradley gather steam for his big run. 

Don’t take our word for it, head on over to Bradley’s popular podcast, A Lot To Talk About, where he interviews important names in Australian sport, culture and entertainment. Run with CFA and Bradley Dryburgh this October, get out there and show the CF colours.

BRADLEY DRYBURGH'S          #42FORCF             

Cystic Fibrosis Australia (CFA) has been pounding the pavement this November in the lead up to Bradley Dryburgh’s #42forCF marathon in Wollongong, NSW. We are all used to hitting the streets for our cause, but this time we are not collecting change or protesting at Parliament House - instead we are pulling on our active wear and getting fit for CF. Bradley Dryburgh wants to see his CF community achieve their fitness goals and dreams no matter what. Bradley manages CF and has always worked hard to maintain his active lifestyle. Now he is going a step beyond by running a full marathon and inspiring Australian kids. At CFA we couldn’t help but get on board to support Bradley by putting his message into action, even if that means dusting off our running shoes. Maybe a full marathon is still beyond my personal fitness horizon, but I have been running/walking every day to slowly count off my #42forCF and show Bradley that he will never need to face those miles alone. Join us and do #42FORCF.  


NEVERREST 2020          4th - 5th September           >


The story of a man who conquered a mountain and another who is determined he is remembered for it. 

More about this year’s challenge…
This year we wanted to get the entire CF community involved, so we decided to do something that has never been done before.
This is about everyone contributing to something special.
One million people in Australia carry the Cystic Fibrosis gene. Most people have no idea. So to bring sawareness to this, we as a community want to complete ONE MILLION push ups in a 24 hour period.
This is a huge task, but we are confident we can make this happen.
Get out of your comfort zone and contribute to this mammoth goal.
Gather your friends, family, work colleagues, sporting team or school community and be part of something really big.
