Fundraiser For Cystic Fibrosis: Walking 65K for 65 Roses

We’re taking part in the annual 65k 4 65 Roses Walkathon which is on this Saturday 27th February!

We’ve already dusted off our running (and walking) shoes, and your local Plumber & Electrician To The Rescue team will be ready at the starting line at 9:00AM.

We will be working up a sweat to show support for this great cause, raising funds to support research and treatment of cystic fibrosis for Cystic Fibrosis NSW.

We’re really excited to be backing such important work, and we would love you to join us so we can beat it together! We’ll even match your donation dollar for dollar!

WHAT IS CYSTIC FIBROSIS?

In Australia alone, one baby is born every four days with cystic fibrosis. As a genetic disorder, one in twenty five or so people carry the correct sequence to pass on the CF condition, meaning there’s around one million Australians carrying the gene.

The worst part is that there is no cure yet, and people living with CF endure shortness of breath, regular bouts of bronchitis and pneumonia, crippling stomach pains, poor digestion and a variety of bacterial infections and lung problemsLung failure is the primary cause of death among CF sufferers.

A person born with cystic fibrosis must continually undergo medical treatment throughout their entire life.

HOW YOU CAN HELP

The best way to help is to donate. We’ve set ourselves a goal of raising $750 for Cystic Fibrosis NSW. We’ve reached $271 of that goal so far – and we would love you to help!

OUR PLEDGE

Every little bit matters – small things snowball into big things! With CF the most common life-threatening, recessive genetic condition affecting Australian children, we know it’s time to act!

Let’s join forces and do everything we can to support the important work of Cystic Fibrosis NSW preserving and improving the lives of people living with CF! We can make a difference together!

WALKING THE WALK – THE WALKATHON

That’s why we’re getting on board with the 65K 4 65 Roses walkathon!

Our team of four (Tim, Vic, Murray and Adrian) will be walking with teams from other companies, community groups and private entrants to show support for the foundation, and to raise as much money as we can to support Cystic Fibrosis NSW and the Children’s Hospital at Westmead.

Our superhero mascot Plumberto will be making an appearance at the event as well! Not to mention he has been training our team for the walkathon.

Our team, led by Plumberto has been working hard to get in shape for the big walk as you can see, the guys are giving it their all to get in shape for the big event!

The event will be held in Leichhardt Park on the 27th of February, using the Bay Run as the track. So far, over $110,000 has been raised in support of Cystic Fibrosis NSW – with your help we can push that even higher!

THERE IS NO CURE… YET

Research is being conducted around the world – in the UK, USA and Australia in particular – to find a cure for CF. The Australian Cystic Fibrosis Research Trust supports over half a million dollars of research a year across Australia!

The 65K 4 65 Roses walkathon raises funds for both The Children’s Hospital, Westmead and the Cystic Fibrosis NSW foundation. This support makes possible advocacy, treatment of CF, research and more!

It’s time to step up – even the smallest donation puts us on the road to a cure for CF. You can  donate to the Plumber & Electrician To The Rescue’s team page, and remember – we’re matching donations until we reach our goal!

IS IT REALLY EASY?

We’ve done out best to make the steps above as simple as possible, but please bear in mind that the above information is general and is by no means a substitute for comprehensive professional advice. Before working on your home plumbing, you should always consult a licensed professional.

The key to keeping costs low on your plumbing is identifying faults whilst they are still minor and easily fixable, before they become larger problems, which cause serious damage to your heater or your property – not to mention the safety risks.

At best, a hot water heater malfunction can be a frustrating nuisance; at worst, it can literally explode, which could spell disaster for your home.

Regular maintenance of your hot water heater is a great way to save in the long run. But there are some jobs that really should be left to the experts; heaters are delicate and temperamental, and can be dangerous if you’re not careful.

A DIY inspection is a great first step; but the expertise of your local superhero plumbers Sydney wide, you’re always in safe hands. We’ve got 30 years of experience saving Sydney from hot water heater disasters!

Check your heater manual; on average, manufacturers recommend a professional investigation every year or two. This investigation will turn up any issues that may be invisible to the untrained eye!

What’s more, with fully stocked vans on the go 24/7, the team at Plumber To The Rescue can repair or replace your heater that day, and get your water back on track.

Your local Plumber To The Rescue Sydney plumber is the plumber Sydney trusts for every hot water job.

With amazing customer care keeping you in the loop the whole way through, you won’t be in the dark; we’ll keep you in the know every step of the job, from the time you call until it comes time to settle the bill, and it comes time for you to enjoy your new hot water heater.
