Mango Hill State School is a community leader when it comes to fundraising for Cystic Fibrosis Queensland (CFQ).
Last year, thanks to the support of cystic fibrosis mum and advocate, Cindy Clenton, the school bounced into action and launched Bounce 2 Breathe (B2B) as its annual 65 Roses Dress for Red Day – to raise awareness and funds for cystic fibrosis.
May 2018 saw the CFQ B2B activation team roll into Mango Hill State School and set up a fleet of GeeTramp trampolines. The Minister for Health, Dr Seven Miles, was joined on the day by more than 1000 students – all who bounced for our cause and successfully raised over $25 000 to support Queenslanders living with this incurable disease.
As Queensland’s peak community not for profit charity working with and for people living with CF, CFQ relies on 90% of income from fundraising – something we share in common with P&C Associations. The results achieved at Mango Hill State School inspired us to create a partnership opportunity with P&Cs that would maximise fundraising revenue to our mutual benefit.
Under the new partnership, this year B2B is returning to Mango Hill State School 31 May, coinciding with CFQ’s official 65 Roses Giving Day. After activation costs, Mango Hill State School’s P&C Association will receive 45% of funds raised and the remainder will continue to support CFQ.
This year Cindy’s son Noah, who lives with CF, is inviting local businesses to sign up to ‘Team Noah’ and join him in bouncing on the day. All donations over $2 are tax-deductible and can be made online via the B2B fundraising platform. Bounce into action, contact firstname.lastname@example.org and be part of B2B 2019.
