ABOUT CYSTIC FIBROSIS

Cystic fibrosis is a genetic disorder that affects the lungs and digestive system. The exocrine system of people with cystic fibrosis malfunctions, meaning they develop excessively thick and sticky mucus within the lungs, airways and digestive system. This weakens the digestive functions of the pancreas and traps bacteria in the lungs resulting in recurrent infections, leading to irreversible damage to these organs. A baby is born every four days with cystic fibrosis and sadly, there is currently no cure.

You can make a difference to those living with cystic fibrosis by attending our luncheon.

HOW FUNDS WILL BE USED

The funds raised at this event will be used to support research into the causes, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of Cystic Fibrosis.

HISTORY OF THE EVENT

The Melbourne Cup Luncheon first started in 2003, in honour of Glenn Brown, a 15-year-old schoolboy from Kalgoorlie who had just passed away from cystic fibrosis. During his time in the hospital, Glenn met Janeine and Alison, who are both mothers of children with cystic fibrosis. Glenn had told them that he wasn’t ready to die and was scared of being forgotten.

When Glenn passed away, Janeine and Alison wanted to keep his memory alive. Within eight weeks they put together the first Melbourne Cup Luncheon with nearly 80 people in attendance.

15 years later, the luncheon has raised over $410,000 with everything (except the discounted food) either kindly sponsored, gifted or borrowed.
