Our wonderful community are passionate about our cause and improving the lives of those living with cystic fibrosis – 90% of our income relies on fundraising, so we really could not do this without you!
How will you join the fight to breathe?
Join an event
To commemorate our diamond jubilee and to help secure the long-term future of Cystic Fibrosis Queensland we have established a perpetuity account. We have 60 founding donors, one for each year of operation, who have each contribute $1,000. The Diamond Jubilee Donors Club continues to grow and you can still become a member!
Calling all crazy schools! Register your school or childcare centre to go crazy and encourage students and teachers to wear their craziest hair to school whilst raising funds and awareness for cystic fibrosis.
Host an event
Whether it is hosting a cocktail party or an art auction, walking 65km or competing in a charity golf day, hosting a sausage sizzle or a tea party, we can help you with your fundraising ideas and activities. For more information visit our fundraising page.
Would you, or your organisation, like to help Cystic Fibrosis Queensland to raise awareness and funds for those affected by cystic fibrosis? Volunteering is a great way to meet new people and learn more about the cystic fibrosis community, all while helping a great cause!
We are always looking for friendly and enthusiastic volunteers to assist us with major events such as 65 Roses Day and Great Strides as well as other roles including office and admin support, skills-based volunteering and bookshop volunteers.

Cystic Fibrosis Queensland is committed to delivering its events safely by following best practice guidelines as outlined by Queensland Health. Please view Cystic Fibrosis Queensland’s COVID Safe Events Plan.
For up-to-date information about COVID-19, please visit Queensland Health.
There are inherent risks that people with cystic fibrosis face when attending Cystic Fibrosis Queensland events. As a member of the cystic fibrosis community, before you decide to attend an event, please read this warning very carefully.
Any event organised by Cystic Fibrosis Queensland is open to our members and therefore will be attended by members of the cystic fibrosis community for the primary purpose of their enjoyment, information, recreation and the opportunity to mix at the venue with other members of the cystic fibrosis community. If you (or any children under 18 years of age who will attend a Cystic Fibrosis Queensland event with your permission) have cystic fibrosis, there may be a real, serious and inherent risk that by attending the event you (or your children) will be exposed to pathogens that might severely harm your (or your children’s) health. These pathogens could include (but are not limited to): Burkholderia cepacia, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, human respiratory syncytial virus, human parainfluenza viruses, influenza viruses or other pathogens that are currently unknown. For people with cystic fibrosis, exposure to these pathogens could lead to serious illness, injury or even death. If you, or your accompanying children, attend a Cystic Fibrosis Queensland event, then reducing physical contact (e.g. kissing, shaking hands) is likely to reduce the risk of cross-infection, but there is no reliable or effective way to eliminate all risk of transfer of a pathogenic infection. You should also practice good public health hygiene (e.g. hand washing, covering your mouth if you cough) to reduce the risk for others.
