For those unsure of what Cystic Fibrosis is there is a little blurb at bottom of the page.
Are the team CFNZ aiming to complete a 1/2 Marathon for CF Nelson Marlborough.
An importants part of living with Cystic Fibrosis is exercise, something we have taken for granted but those living with CF must do it to survive, therefore to show support we will complete St Clair 1/2 marathon. This will encourage us to open our lungs, breath in the air, push ourselves a little further, a simple task not so easy for someone living with Cystic Fibrosis.
One of the team members stats "
Personally as someone who does not run even 1k and would prefer to sit down with a bar of chocolate, I need to set a better example to a young man in my life. If I am to set an example and encourage him to do exercise and physio everyday of his life, to help keep his lungs clear, healthy and strong, then i need to practice what I preach. This 1/2 marathon will be a challenge, which I am willing to except to help support the cause."
Others in the team are running for their family and friends they want here for longer and those we lost too soon but now what to help others.
Please support us in our Challenge

What is Cystic Fibrosis?
Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic condition with no cure it causes and sticky mucus that blocks the tiny vessels mainly in the lungs but also effects other organs like the pancreas and digestive tract. Multiple medications, physio and nebulisers are needed daily to help a person with Cystic Fibrosis to live their life within the community. This can cause financial burden to either the person and their families or the family caring for a child with Cystic Fibrosis, especially when they fall unwell, due to extended hospital stays, funding treatments not provided by the government, heating houses to stay warm and dry and keep well, higher grocery bill to provide nutritional support to maintain health
