On Friday 26 May, hundreds of volunteers and businesses across Western Australia are banding together to sell 13,500 long stemmed roses to raise much needed money to provide care to children and young adults living with CF. The proceeds will also go towards fund world class research right here in WA.

Roses for 65 Roses Day will be sold by CFWA volunteers at $5 per stem, or $50 for 12 roses.

WHAT: 65 Roses Day

WHEN: 26th May, 2017

WHERE: Perth CBD and surrounds and throughout regional WA

WHY: To raise much needed funds for CF research to help find a cure

“65 Roses” sounds like cystic fibrosis.  Our “65 Roses” story dates back to 1965, when an observant 4-year-old, hearing the name of his disease for the first time, pronounced cystic fibrosis as "65 Roses." Today, “65 Roses” helps us create awareness and make a difference for families in their fight with cystic fibrosis.
