Southern Crane Kungfu Kids’ class is raising money for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust by holding a Kickathon on Thursday 27 September in our class, where we will try to do more than 500 kicks in one hour between our students who age from four to nine years old.
DONATE HERE!! Thank you!
We want to help fund research into finding a cure and developing better treatments for this life-threatening inherited disease, which affects over 8,000 babies, children and young adults in the UK.
Freya is a friend of Southern Crane Kungfu Kids, and is one of those babies that were born with Cystic Fibrosis. Cystic Fibrosis affects the vital organs of the body. One of the main problems it causes is clogging the lungs and digestive organs with thick, sticky mucus, which makes breathing and digesting food difficult. It also causes complications including diabetes, liver disease, brittle bones and gallstones.
A lot of progress has been made in Cystic Fibrosis research since 1964, when a baby with the disease was lucky to reach the age of five years. Over half of the UK’s sufferers of Cystic Fibrosis can now expect to live to over 35 years of age; however, this means that half – currently 4,000 babies, children and young adults – do not.
One in 25 of us in Britain carry the faulty Cystic Fibrosis gene. This disease can affect any one of us. Help us by sponsoring us! Freya is now one year old and is strong and healthy. Help Freya continue to live a long, healthy, wonderful life. Beat Cystic Fibrosis! Thank you!
