In February 2014, Mila was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis when she was three weeks old. As her family and friends began to fully understand the implications of Mila’s illness and the impact it could have on her life we decided to do all that we could to raise funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, to help find a cure for this life limiting illness. Towards the end of 2014 we began planning our first series of fundraising events and in 2015 our team efforts raised over £13,000.
Following on from our success in 2015, we decided to set ourselves a ’65 Roses’ challenge, to host 65 events with an aim to triple the money raised in 2015. Listed below are the challenges that our team, friends and family have undertaken so far this year.
In 2016 we managed to raise £32k 2016 for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust!
