The Norfolk Mountaineers
About the group
We are an enthusiastic group from Norfolk (not known for its hills!), keen to raise money for our chosen charity, The Cystic Fibrosis Trust. Ella (our niece/great niece) has CF, and doing really well, and that's partly due to the support of the CF Trust which does fantastic work in supporting people with CF. We plan to walk (or crawl if necessary) the 3 National Peaks within 24 hours in June 2021!

Fundraising for The Cystic Fibrosis Trust
"The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is the only UK-wide charity making a daily difference to the lives of people with cystic fibrosis and those who care for them.
Cystic fibrosis is a life-shortening genetic condition that slowly destroys the lungs and digestive system. The faulty cystic fibrosis gene controls the movement of salt and water in and out of the cells within the body.
People with cystic fibrosis face a lifelong challenge, involving vast daily intakes of drugs, time-consuming physiotherapy and isolation from others with the condition, just to stay healthy.
1 in 25
of the UK population carries the faulty cystic fibrosis gene, most without knowing it. If two carriers have a child together there is a 1 in 4 chance the baby will be born with cystic fibrosis
babies are born each week with cystic fibrosis.
people die every week due to the condition.
of people with cystic fibrosis in the UK will live to celebrate their 40th birthday.
We are here to beat it, and to make a daily difference to the lives of those with cystic fibrosis and the people who care for them.
We invest in cutting-edge research, drive up standards of care, offer support for everyone affected by cystic fibrosis, and campaign hard and shout loud about the issues that matter.
Cystic fibrosis is beatable. With your support it is a battle we can win."
