CF Awareness Week moves to May

Tuesday 7 July, 2020

Grab your pen and diary and put a big circle around May 2021!

Cystic Fibrosis NZ has taken the decision to align our annual awareness drive with our counterparts in Australia and America by moving CF Awareness Week to May.

We’ve always felt there are so many aspects to CF that it’s hard to pin it to just one week – so we’re taking over May with CF Month. We're already planning far ahead for this, so let us know if you’re interested in sharing your story as part of this by emailing

Our next street collections will take place 28 and 29 May 2021 and we’ll be sharing insights on CF throughout the month. This means that we will not be holding our appeal week this August, and there will be no street collections in 2020.

Instead we'll be putting all our energies (and sweat!) into SWEATEMBER where we'll be asking the New Zealand public to sweat for CF through our SWEAT4CF fundraising campaign.

If you have any questions or concerns, get in touch with our fundraising manager, Laura at or 021 195 5787.
