The 65K 4 65 Roses Walkathon is an annual fun walk and endurance event held to raise funds for the fight against Cystic Fibrosis, a life threatening genetic condition affecting 1000's of young Australians.
The 2018 65K 4 65 Roses Walkathon will be held on Saturday February 24th 2018. The iconic walk will take place around Sydney's Iron Cove Bay, with a base camp at Leichhardt Park, and is open to friends, families, thrill-seekers and just about anyone looking for a great day out.
65K 4 65 Roses is named after the ultra-marathon distance of 65 kilometres, and uses the name 65 Roses - which is the nickname for cystic fibrosis. But don't let the 65km course scare you off, you can walk or run as many 7km laps as you want.
Runners are welcome!
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is the most common inherited, life threatening condition affecting young Australians. For a child to be born with CF both parents must be genetic carriers for CF. Cystic Fibrosis is life shortening and there is no cure.
All proceeds from the 65k 4 65 Roses Walkathon go towards helping The Children's Hospital at Westmead and Cystic Fibrosis Community Care provide vital support to those with cystic fibrosis.
