65 Roses National Awareness Week

65 ROSES NATIONAL AWARENESS WEEK - 20th- 27th April 2015




 Why 65 Roses?

'65 Roses' is how some children first learn how to say 'Cystic Fibrosis'. The symbol in Ireland for '65 Roses Week' is a purple rose.

What can you do?

To support 65 Roses Week and help people with CF you can: 

1: Text 65Roses to 50300 to donate €2

(Note: 100% of the cost goes to charity across most network providers. Some providers apply VAT which means a minimum of €1.63 will come to CFI) Service Provider: Like Charity, Helpline 076 680 5278

2: Support the '65 Roses Challenge'

Organise a fundraising event in your area using a '65' theme if possible e.g walk 6.5km, cycle 65km. You can be as creative as you like, remember the sky is the limit!


3: Buy a CF Purple Rose

Our CF Ireland volunteers will be out and about in many shopping centres around the country during 65 Roses Week from April 20th-27th and they will be selling the CF Ireland Purple Silk Roses. We encourage everyone to buy a Purple Rose and show your support for Cystic Fibrosis Ireland.
