South West residents want to help conquer cystic fibrosis with a fundraiser next month.

The profits from the outdoor movie night will go to Conquer Cystic Fibrosis South West, which is part of a Statewide effort to boost funding into the research of this disease.

Event organiser Brooke McKitterick organised an outdoor movie night two years ago which attracted more than 600 people.

Ms McKitterick said Conquer Cystic Fibrosis Inc. has the goal of improving, extending and saving the lives of the more than 3000 people with Cystic Fibrosis in Australia and 70,000 worldwide.

It is a passionate group of volunteers and comprises of people of children with CF, friends of those parents and several selfless individuals untouched by the disease but with a desire to help,

she said.

The event was made possible with a grant from Bunbury City Council and local businesses supporting the event through sponsorship and donated prizes for the raffle.

Beck Walker’s two-year-old son Josh has cystic fibrosis and she said any funds that can go towards Cystic Fibrosis research can help improve the quality of life of those living with it.

“This is for the health and life of children with cystic fibrosis so it is a big deal for us,” she said.
