Running For Olivia In North Lakes!

Four year old Olivia was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at the age 8 weeks old .Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disease that primarily affects the lungs and digestive system due to a malfunction in the exocrine system, which is responsible for producing saliva, sweat, tears and mucus and there is currently no cure. Olivia is in need of over $30,000 in medical equipment, including a $5,000 nebuliser and a $25,000 percussion vest. These items only last between 3-7 years so her parents will need to find this amount of money again in the near future. Unfortunately, Olivia’s parents do not qualify for any sort of state or federal assistance and treatment is very expensive.

Laura Stubbing (Olivia’s mum) will be running in a half marathon on Sunday, 17th July to raise funds for Olivia. But she won’t stop there. Laura will also be running around North Lakes central on Friday, 5th August. She has already raised $3,000 on her own but that is simply not enough. Laura’s goal is $10,000 and she believes that amount can be raised right here in our community!

“I had an amazing idea in the middle of the night.” “I will spend a day literally running around all of North Lakes in my tutu and ‘Running for Olivia’ singlet to all of our local businesses who may want to help Olivia with her every day living expenses.” Laura said.

A photo will be taken with all participating businesses for recognition on social media as well as a mention in the North Lakes messenger.
