Worldwide survey to promote physical activity for people with CF

Physical exercise is one of the most effective ways for someone with cystic fibrosis to manage their condition. Cystic Fibrosis NZ provides annual Breath4CF grants that help with the costs associated, allowing people to pay for new running shoes, a bike, gym membership and more.

Sarah Denford, a research fellow at the University of Exeter recently got in touch with us to share the news that she's working on a Cystic Fibrosis Trust funded project aiming to promote physical activity for young people with CF.

The project is in the process of running a worldwide survey that aims to explore the physical activity behaviours, attitudes, barriers and facilitators among young people with CF around the world.

We are asking young people with CF, their parents/carers, and members of multidisciplinary CF teams to complete the survey to help build up the best possible picture.

This data will inform the development of toolkits and interventions to better support young people to be active without limits. The more people that are able to take part the better!
