Big Bounce

Exercise is important for everyone to stay healthy, but it is particularly important for people with cystic fibrosis. The fitter and healthier a person with cystic fibrosis is, the easier they can fight off illness.

Bouncing is a fun and easy way for people with cystic fibrosis to exercise and also helps to clear mucus from the lungs, which could otherwise attract infection. So what better way to raise money than by bouncing?

See what the pupils of Sandbach High School and Sixth Form College in Cheshire got up to when they dedicated their sports day to CF Week 2013.

Organise your own Big Bounce

This campaign is all about bouncing, whether on space hoppers, trampolines, pogo sticks – anything that bounces! The key is to get creative.
You can hold your event at your school or your local hall, but if these are too tame why not try something more adventurous?

  • Across bridges and back
  • A race on a grand driveway to stately houses or castles
  • A lap of a racecourse
  • Along a seafront promenade or the beach
  • On woodland trails or disused railways
  • Around the grounds of stadiums

So what to do on your bounce? Create an assault course, bounce at work, hire a bouncy castle, have a race – there are all kinds of challenges you can set. For more ideas and further guidance or organising your event, download your How to Big Bounce.

Advertise your event with our Big Bounce Poster.
