Cystic Fibrosis NZ informs, with regret, that the 36th annual Crusaders V All Stars Cricket Match scheduled for Saturday 15 December 2018 at Hagley Oval, Christchurch, has been cancelled.
We have immensely enjoyed working with the Crusaders, all stars, Christchurch businesses and members of the public to raise money for Kiwis affected by cystic fibrosis (CF) over the years. However this year, circumstances beyond our control has meant that the fundraiser is no longer in the best interest financially for the charity.
We will be contacting all those who have purchased tickets to offer a full refund.
In the match’s place, we have joined forces with Duco Events as the official charity for the Joseph Parker V Alexander Flores fight night on Saturday 15 December at Horncastle Arena, Christchurch. We will also have volunteers collecting on behalf of Cystic Fibrosis NZ at the Christchurch Black Clash event on 25 January 2019.
The decision to cancel has not been taken lightly, however our utmost priority is to ensure sustainability so that we can continue to support individuals with CF and their families.
We hope that the Christchurch community will continue to support Kiwis with cystic fibrosis at these two exciting events.
