Big Brize Bounce


It's day 4 of CF Week and we are hoping that the weather will cheer up! Today a few of us are going to the RAF Brize Norton, Big Brize Bounce. It is a World Record Attempt for biggest number of people racing on space hoppers.  Take a look at what they will be getting up to.  Brize Norton decided to hold a large event today to support Cystic Fibrosis Week, we are expecting up to 1000 service men and women to take part.  They decided to do this because two of the men on squadron 47 have children with Cystic Fibrosis.

In all the busyness here at CF Trust HQ, with our Big Cake Bake and Information Day, it's important to remember why we are raising awareness and funds for Cystic Fibrosis. So often people only know about CF when it affects one of their family or friends. Whatever you decide to do for CF Week, be sure to speak to people about the Week, mention our website and ask them to mark the week by finding out what they can about CF. You could also ask them to donate to the CF Trust to help us go on supporting families and funding medical research. It is through our support and advances in treatments that we can truly make a difference and help people with Cystic Fibrosis to live longer and better lives.

If you live somewhere where you can get a Metro newspaper you'll see on page 13 a great article about CF Week and 48 year old twins, Christine and Michelle who are living with the condition.

If you want to take part in an event near you there is still time, visit: and take part.

The CF Week Team!
