CF Awareness Week

This year’s Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Week runs from 15 August to 21 August, with the main collection day being held on Friday 19 August in many areas.

Our sponsors Choice Hotels will kindly be hosting their 3rd fundraising week for Cystic Fibrosis New Zealand during that week.

In the last two years Choice Hotels have supported CFNZ with a fundraising week that involved over 30 New Zealand hotels donating $2 from every night stayed. This year Choice Hotels are again donating $2 from every night stayed to CFNZ during Awareness Week at any Ascend Hotel Collection, Clarion, Quality, Comfort and Econo Lodge.

There will be CF collectors out in main centres and various events at a local level to help raise awareness of the condition and much-needed funds for CFNZ services.

CF Otago hosted their annual Big Bubbles Display on 13 August at the Anzac Square Gardens in front of the Dunedin Railway Station. It was a great day with a record crowd. Otago Chairperson Julian Cox was interviewed by Dunedin TV at the event:
