Walk for Cystic Fibrosis

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 thousands of Australians.

The 2021 65K 4 65 Roses Walkathon is going virtual! It will take place over the span of a week, from 13 February through 21 February with an emphasis on 65K Day, which will be 20 February.

The 65K 4 65 Roses Walkathon 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 – there are several distance categories to choose from and you can choose to tackle your distance in one go or over the span of 9 days from 13 February until 21 February.

Runners are welcome!

Help make a difference!

Cystic fibrosis (also called CF) is the most common, life-limiting genetic condition affecting Australians. 3,500 people are living with CF in Australia and 1 in 25 people carry the recessive CF gene.

Babies born today with CF can expect to live well into adulthood. There is no cure but advances in treatment and care are helping people to better manage their CF.

All proceeds from the 65k 4 65 Roses Walkathon go towards helping Cystic Fibrosis Community Care and The Children’s Hospital at Westmead provide vital support to those with cystic fibrosis.
