GET SWEATY FOR CF THIS SWEATEMBER!
31 August 2021
And just like that, Sweatember is here! Join hundreds of New Zealanders as they take on a sweaty challenge of their choice during September and raise money for a better future for Kiwis with cystic fibrosis.
A big shout out to everyone who has already signed up. Your decision to become a sweating superstar is soooo appreciated.
And for those of you still thinking about getting involved, don’t be shy! You can choose to support an already registered superstar or register your own activity at any point during September. Any sweaty activity qualifies and you can participate as either an individual or team – it’s entirely up to you.
Looking for some inspiration? Here's a few of our top sweaters so far...
- Lorrae_rae - "I'm sweating for CF for my nephew Mr Lincoln who has CF. Mr Lincoln is 2 years old and full of energy with the cheekiest smile. He loves sports and is always running round with his big sister so I figured I'd run 300km in 30 days to sweat for him."
- Reeses 100km in 30 days - "I was born with CF and have always loved physical activity and sport since I was little! I'm sweating to help spread awareness and raise money towards the miracle drug Trikafta, and to show that CF cannot hold me back!"
- Shelleyrob - "Because my beautiful daughter has CF and I want to do what I can to support her and all people living with CF in NZ. I’m going to walk 150km in September!"
- Reclaim Team Dean - "In July 2021, Dean passed away after 19 years of living life to the fullest. If we can help save one life, it’d be worth it. She was one of the rare ones. So effortlessly herself, and the world loved her for it."
- Teagan's 200 km - "My partner George has CF along with many others! I am playing my part this Sweatember to support the CF community & raise $$ to help support George and our fellow CF friends live long and happy lives."
- Lizzie Blades 50k - Lizzie both works at CFNZ and lives with CF. “Every $ we raise goes straight into giving Kiwis living with CF a bigger and better future. I'll blade to that!”
However you get involved, you can feel great knowing that all donations raised will make a tangible difference to the CF community.
