DO Details

The 65K 4 65 Roses Walkathon is an annual fun walk and endurance event held to raise funds for the fight against cystic fibrosis, a life threatening genetic condition affecting thousands of Australians.

The 2020 65K 4 65 Roses Walkathon will be held on Saturday 22 February 2020. The iconic walk will take place around Sydney's Iron Cove Bay, with a base camp at Leichhardt Park Oval #3, and is open to anyone looking for a great day out.

The 65K 4 65 Roses Walkathon is named after the ultra-marathon distance of 65 kilometres and uses the name 65 Roses - which is the nickname for cystic fibrosis. But don't let the 65km course scare you off – there are several distance categories to choose from.

Runners are welcome!

DO Supports

Cystic Fibrosis Community Care's mission is to promote awareness of cystic fibrosis (CF), provide support, advocacy and information to the CF community, and fund medical research into the fight against CF. Cystic fibrosis is the most common, life-limiting genetic condition affecting Australians. 3,500 people are living with CF in Australia and 1 in 25 people carry the recessive CF gene. Babies born today with CF can expect to live well into adulthood. There is no cure but advances in treatment and care are helping people to better manage their CF. CF causes an abnormal build-up of thick and sticky mucus in the lungs, airways and digestive system. Treatment requires intensive daily physiotherapy to clear the lungs and airways, countless medications and frequent hospitalisations.
