On Friday 29th July go crazy and raise awareness about cystic fibrosis by encouraging children and Educators to wear their craziest hair for the day.
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is the most common inherited, life-threatening condition affecting young Australians. For a child to be born with CF both parents must be genetic carriers for CF. Cystic Fibrosis is life-shortening and there is no cure.
For most people with CF, there are two main areas in the body affected, the lungs in the respiratory system and the pancreas in the digestive system. The sweat glands are also affected in a person who has this condition. Not everyone with CF experiences problems with their digestive system and some children experience more issues with symptoms than others.
How To Get Involved:
- Encourage children and educators to wear a crazy hairstyle and donate a gold coin to go towards this fundraiser.
- Teach children about cystic fibrosis.
- Discuss germs, where they come from, and how to minimise them.
- Reinforce proper hand washing techniques with the children, when to wash hands etc.
All money raised during Crazy Hair Day goes towards helping the Cystic Fibrosis Federation in Australia provide vital support to those suffering from cystic fibrosis.
