My name is Susan Gascoine and I am 70 years old. I have walked, and will continue walking, along various routes within South Australia to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis (CF). I have a 10 year old granddaughter who has CF and this is a way I feel I can do something to make a difference.
Ever since our granddaughter was born, I had been wondering what I could do to raise money to help with research for a cure for CF and to help people suffering with CF. While sitting with my dying mother in May 2015, I decided that I was wasting my time just thinking about it. I needed to ACT NOW. Walking is something my mother loved doing, and it was as though she was telling me to “Do it now!”. So here I am asking for your help to raise the $15,000 goal I have set for myself.
My aim is twofold: to raise awareness of Cystic Fibrosis in the community, and to raise at least $15,000 to be divided equally between helping fund research into a cure for CF and helping people who are already suffering with CF.
Come and join me for any amount of time, be it an hour or two, a day or longer, either on the road or at an event. Your company and efforts will brighten my days, make the walking easier and more interesting, and be most gratefully appreciated.
