Breathe for Cystic Fibrosis

Ghada at GirlsToys is running a half marathon on May 1.  The mere thought of it is enough to make me reach for another slice of chocolate brownie!  But she's doing it for a great cause - to raise $4000 for Breath4CF and The Cystic Fibrosis Association of New Zealand.

"Breath4CF was started by Kiwi mum Tracey Richardson. At the time she was a depressed and overweight mother of 2 children with CF. She went on to compete in 2 Ironman events in order to spread the message about CF and the positive effects physical activity had for people with CF. In the process she raised hundreds of thousands of dollars and started the Breath4CF Fund."

Not only is Ghada going to be raising awareness for the charity by running a half marathon, but she will be spreading the word about the charity through online fundraising and social media.  She will also be running a fantastic auction and raffle from March 22nd.

Donations to Breath4CF can be made through GiveaLittle and you can check out the auction site to see the great items available to bid for - all starting at $5 - $10 dollars!
