Ride for Research – tackling Pseudomonas aeruginosa lung infections

With recent breakthroughs in life-changing treatments, this is an exciting time for the CF community. However, there is still much more to be done to ensure everyone with CF can truly live a life unlimited. Join us this September for our virtual cycling challenge ‘Ride for Research’ and raise money to help fund vital ground-breaking research that will benefit everyone with cystic fibrosis. The event will run through the whole month of September and you can choose to cycle any distance, however big or small – whether that’s on a cycle, static bike or Penny Farthing!

This year’s focus will be on Pseudomonas aeruginosa, a type of bacteria which commonly causes serious and hard-to-treat lung infections within those who have cystic fibrosis. The Trust is currently funding research to develop more effective treatments for this infection. The fundraising from Ride for Research will be vital to support the ongoing research and improving the lives of people with CF.
