I am so proud to be involved in some fundraising for a very special cause!
All profits made from the sales of this iphone cover will go directly to Team Ruby, to raise funds that will help children and families living with Cystic Fibrosis.
Team Ruby started in Jan ‘11 when Ruby’s family and friends entered a team in the 65k 4 65 Roses fundraiser.
The Challenge was for Craig (Ruby’s dad) to walk 65 kilometers in one day to raise money for CF NSW & Westmead Children’s Hospital.
Our teams goal was to raise $2000. We finished with over $14600. These funds will help children and families living with Cystic Fibrosis.
Now that the walk is over, they are keeping the Team Ruby page active! We will be using the page to give updates on Ruby’s health, and to educate people about this genetic incurable disease.
more awareness = more support and funding, leading towards a cure
you CAN help, it’s easy! Share this page with friends, participate in any CF related activites that are occurring, offer words of encouragement.
~ Every 4 days, a baby in Australia will be born with CF
~ CF is a genetic disease that affects a number of organs in the body, especially the lungs, by clogging them with thick, sticky mucus
~ There is no cure for CF
~ The average life expectancy of someone with CF is currently 37
~ 1 in 25 people carry the CF gene, most don’t know it (Craig and I certainly didn’t!)
