Cystic Fibrosis Ireland's 65 Roses Day
Friday, April 9th, 2021
Unfortunately, Cystic Fibrosis Ireland cannot proceed with its 65 Roses Day collections on Friday April 9 due to COVID-19. Members of the public are instead being encouraged to please support people with cystic fibrosis (CF) on 65 Roses Day by donating online at 65RosesDay.ie or by taking part in a virtual 65 Roses Team Challenge.
People are being urged to get teams of people to come together virtually to take part in a 65-themed challenge in their own team colours – whether that be GAA, soccer, rugby, hockey, and so on – to help raise much-needed funds. Full details on how to set up a virtual 65 Roses Team Challenge can be found at 65RosesDay.ie.
It can be a 65,000 steps challenge, a 6.5k walk, a 65km cycle, a 65-minute run, or any challenge with a 65 theme.
65 Roses Day gets its name from the way children often first say the words “cystic fibrosis”.
There are approximately 1,400 people living with CF in Ireland which has the highest incidence of CF in the world per head of population. Ireland also has some of the more severe strains of CF.
Funds raised on 65 Roses Day go to support a range of services for people with CF including funding of hospital CF facilities and staff, research, and patient grants for supports such as counselling, exercise equipment, fertility treatment, and transplant out-of-pocket expenses.
You can follow Cystic Fibrosis Ireland on Facebook at @CysticFibrosisIreland, and on Twitter and Instagram @cf_ireland. Hashtag is #65RosesDay
