Dublin Dumbbells has kindly partnered with the Julian Benson CF Foundation to raffle off three sets of high-quality dumbbells to one lucky winner, with all funds going to charity.
The Julian Benson CF Foundation (JBCFF) is a project-based charity tasked with providing much-needed support to CF patients and their families across Ireland. We aim to improve patient quality of life, which will be achieved through creating a positive therapeutic healing environment for patients to rest, recover and be with their families at a very critical time.
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is an inherited chronic disease that primarily affects the lungs and digestive system of about 1,300 children and adults in Ireland (70,000 worldwide).
There is currently no cure for CF, and the predicted median age of survival for a person with CF is in the early and mid-30’s in Ireland.
Ireland not only has the highest incidence of cystic fibrosis in the world, but also the largest proportion of families with more than one child suffering from the condition.
JBCFF aims is to make life easier for CF Patients and their families, as they already go through so many daily battles. Funds from this raffle will go towards the Tranquility House. This project will help ease the financial burden on families during hospital stays, the emotional burden of illness and promote healing on the journey to better health. This house will be a home away from home, supporting patients and their families as CF patients often undergo long term hospital stays. The house will be built to have self-sufficient pods per family, enabling social distancing and preventing infection spread. It's a resource that will help thousands of families across Ireland for years to come.
