Coughing the Distance





FUCF - Coughing for Cystic Fibrosis Pushing the Limit

In June, our Team is taking part in The Push-Up Challenge. 

People living with CF are often affected by mental health issues. Imagine looking healthy but not being able to participate with your friends in social, sport or work activities.... It can get pretty depressing. So to draw attention to mental health in general and make us feel better at the same time I decided we need to do pushups for a month!! I've done it a few times before, and it is possible for everyone! Even if you don't do pushups you can still join by doing squats, situps or whatever! It's the spirit!

We are going to help shine the spotlight on the number of lives lost to suicide in 2020 and raise awareness of mental health. Feel free to join us or support a team member who is taking part. Help us push for better mental health.

hullo Tiina, Pusheruperer Superior. As an ex-psychologist I'm pleased to support you. In such terrible times we need these services desperately. Never did manage a push-up myself. Hope to see you some time. Barbara

I have always admired you Wally - you are an inspiration to all of those around us! But I prefer to do my 3,139 pushups in one day. Arnie xx PS - come with me if you want to live!
