We need your support!

2020 Grand Ball Appeal

On Saturday 20 June 2020 the Crown Perth Grand Ballroom would have been filled with a sell-out crowd of 700+ guests for the 17th annual Capel Vale Conquer Cystic Fibrosis Grand Ball.

The cancellation of the 2020 Grand Ball has been a huge blow for our volunteer-run charity which funds vital Cystic Fibrosis research projects.

Today we are appealing to those who had planned to attend our Grand Ball to donate!  This could be a portion of the $220 ticket price or what you may have spent attending the event.

We know that times are tough for many at the moment but we need your support to keep the funds flowing to the researchers.

We have committed to funding research with numerous organisations including the Telethon Kids Institute, Institute for Respiratory Health and the Australian Cystic Fibrosis Research Trust (ACFRT) through Cystic Fibrosis Australia.

We are committed to ensuring this vital research can continue.

Conquer Cystic Fibrosis (CCF) has funded more than 25 research projects and continues to support research through two primary channels

Projects

Institute of Respiratory Health

In 2015, CCF formed a partnership with the Institute of Respiratory Health which is situated in Nedlands.

Thanks to a $1 million commitment over five years, the Conquer Cystic Fibrosis Research Program was born.

This program funds three new postgraduate PhD Scholarships. These scholarships will foster careers in Cystic Fibrosis (CF) research and improve the adult care offered to all those living with CF in WA. It is hoped that the scholarships will help to attract and retain top clinicians in our State. Contact us for more information.

Australian Cystic Fibrosis Research Trust:

The Australian Cystic Fibrosis Research Trust (ACFRT) seeks to allocate funds for high quality research at a national level. The Trust will only support research that has been assessed and recommended by the scientific community. The Trust along with the help of CCF funds has a research study underway, conducted by the University of Wollongon with conferring institutions, the University of NSW and Nanyang Technological University. This research will explore multi-action antibiotics to treat chronic biofilm infections. The ACFRT have agreed to fund this project over three years up to $588,687.00. Contact us for more information.

Yes, we can always use more help! If you have one hour, or many hours, please contact us.

Volunteers

You might have a special skill we need, or you might just be full of good ideas and energy. We are a friendly, no pressure group just doing what we can. So whether you wish to be on the Grand Ball Committee, help at a function or find donations, we’d love for you to join us.

We would also love families to get involved and host their own fundraiser whether it’s a sausage sizzle, sporting event participation or a grand cocktail party – we need your support and every effort makes a difference.

We are also happy to hear from people with Cystic Fibrosis who want to share their story, write a blog piece or help us promote our message.
