Dare to Care Swim 2022

Please register for the Dare to Care Swim 2022

Bayside Kitchen, Matilda Bay

8am-11am on Saturday, August 20 2022

This year we are swimming to honour the memory of our very own angel, Jayde Kinane. A young woman who so very sadly lost her battle with CF last year.

So please come and join us to “take your breath away.”

This is our fifth annual 1 kilometre Dare to Care Swim in the chilly Swan River. This year we also have a new “Splash and Dash” division which may appeal to the children.

We are a 100% volunteer-run charity helping raise much needed funds for research into a cure for the life threatening disease, Cystic Fibrosis. Every cent raised goes directly into research!

This year’s event has been inspired by CCF ambassador Kaila Maartensz.

Kaila was diagnosed with CF at 3 months of age. At 25 Kaila’s health deteriorated and she was placed on the organ recipient list. It was heart breaking to watch Kaila struggle to breathe, talk and walk over the next 2 long years until finally she received her new lungs.  Kaila’s husband Matt was by her side throughout her transplant and the days, weeks, and months to follow.

Matt also suffered from CF being diagnosed at birth.  Unfortunately he endured many health issues while he was growing up and in 2014 Matt was also placed on the transplant list.  Matt received his new lungs 3 days later.

Following his transplant Matt was busy managing his personal training business. He had also just started his own gardening business when rather quickly, he started to feel unwell.  Matt was subsequently admitted to hospital and sadly his condition deteriorated further.  Tragically Matt passed away on 30th March 2018.  He was just 29 years of age.

Despite the tragic loss of Matt, Kaila continues to advocate for Conquer Cystic Fibrosis and organ donation.   Thank you Kaila so much from the bottom of all our hearts.

To help us raise as much money as possible, we encourage all walkers to register on our Give Now page. Here you will be able to create your own individual fundraising page with personal photos and include your own story about why you are doing the walk.  This will allow your family and friends to support you and make a donation on your behalf to Conquer Cystic Fibrosis.

When you register your Crowdraiser please use the “Walk the Talk” title on your page title with your name. (e.g. Rita’s Walk the Talk for CCF).

All money raised from the walk will fund vital CF related research.

As a 100% volunteer run charity, every dollar you raise will help us to achieve our goal to Conquer Cystic Fibrosis!

It is a great opportunity to meet new people and have a great night out.  You never know – you may even win the big cash prize!

These events are only possible because of the generosity of our amazing volunteers Peter and Lisa Manwaring, who have no family connection to CF, and have been supporting our charity for the last 6 years. We thank them from the bottom of our hearts.
