Would you like the opportunity to volunteer for a great cause while soaking up the atmosphere at one of Victoria’s most exciting fun runs?

Why not join the amazing volunteer team for Cystic Fibrosis Community Care’s (CFCC) Great Strides event on Sunday 22 October in Bendigo at Lake Weeroona.

We would love you to be involved in this fabulous day! Great Strides is a fun and upbeat event and an opportunity to support the Cystic Fibrosis community and CFCC, all whilst making new friends.

About Cystic Fibrosis: Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is the most common inherited and life threatening condition in Australia. More than 700 Victorians living with CF require significant daily medications and physiotherapy and frequent hospitalisation. It is a serious and life-limiting condition. There is no cure. Despite major advances in the treatment of CF, only 50% of those born with this condition reach their late thirties. Additionally, 1 in 25 Australians are unwitting carriers of the defective CF gene. Greater understanding, better treatments and increased support is vital.

About Cystic Fibrosis Community Care: Cystic Fibrosis Community Care (CFCC) is the peak not-for-profit organisation working with and for people with CF across the state. The mission of CFCC is to assist everyone affected by CF to be well and live fuller lives. We provide information, support and guidance to people living with CF and their families. This includes advocating for services and systems that support the CF community. We also seek to raise awareness, understanding and funds for services and research. Over 80% of CFCC income is from fundraising.

About Great Strides:
Great Strides is a 3km or 6km fun run and walk which raises awareness and essential funds for Cystic Fibrosis organisations around Australia. Great Strides is our largest fundraising event, ensuring we can continue to provide key programs and services to the CF community.
