65 Roses & Community Fundraising Events

Here are some of our current supporters' fundraising events.  They are working hard to raise funds and create awareness about CF.  They would greatly appreciate your encouragement and any support that you may be able to provide.

65 Beards   

65 Beards for Cystic Fibrosis is an awareness and fundraiser started for CF. The aim of 65 Beards for Cystic Fibrosis is to get 65 blokes to grow beards for the month of May, try and raise at least $100 each during the month, then shave the beards off on 65 Roses Day the 29th of May. 

Please help by giving whatever you can afford, by spreading the word about CF and the 65 Beards campaign.  Click here for more information and to support our event.

Thankyou in advance for your generosity.
The 65 Beards Team

Thank you Will!

Will has been growing his beard for around 16 months and after being mistaken for a bum, a lumberjack, a bikie, Ned Kelly & various other beard growing men he decided it was time for his beard to go!  

He decided to shave off is beard for a good cause that was close to his heart.The shave took place on 11th May to coincide with Will's birthday.  Enjoy the before and after photo along with a video that was created in memory of "Will's Beard". 

By shave day Will had come close to doubling his target.
