We (The Speedbirds) are raising funds for Mia, an amazing young 9-year old girl who is suffering from Cystic Fibrosis (CF). CF is a genetic disorder that affects mostly the lungs, but also the pancreas, liver, kidneys, and intestine. Long-term issues with CF include difficulty breathing and coughing up mucus as a result of frequent lung infections. Mia is doing her part in tackling her condition head on, and now we need to do our part. There are medical experts in the U.S. who are pioneers in the field of CF, and have developed medicine (not available in South Africa) which has the potential to not only improve Mia's quality of life, but extend her life expectancy as well. The funds we aim to raise will allow Mia to see such a medical expert in the U.S. and get access to life changing medicine. We are therefore using our bicycles to raise funds, and attempting the grueling 94.7km Ride Joburg cycling race on the 17th of November!
PLEASE donate an amount (however small) to this worthy cause!
