PS I must say I’m not beary fit, so sweating everyday will be a challenge for me – you don’t have to be fit to take part in Sweatember!

PPS Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram to see my 30 days of Sweat for Purpose activities.


So whats the connection between sweat and CF

People with CF sweat more than others, and their sweat is very salty. Keeping active is one of the best ways someone with CF can manage their condition, it helps clear the lungs of the thick, sticky mucus build up and minimises the chance of infection. And we all know that exercise is great for our general health and well-being.

CF is a progressive, whole of life condition and although there are some great medicines and treatments available – they are NOT a cure.

We need to raise $127,000 this Sweatember to continue to provide our essential support services to all Kiwis living with CF.

Whats the impact

All of the Sweatember funds that we raise together will fund the programmes and support services provided by CFNZ that help improve the wellbeing and quality of life of people living with CF in New Zealand.

Thank you so much for the difference you make!
