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!
