Anna’s Challenges is a charity dedicated to raising funds and awareness for children with Cystic Fibrosis in Basingstoke and surrounding areas that attend the North Hampshire Hospital. Cystic Fibrosis is one of the UK’s most common, life-threatening, inherited diseases, that affects more than 8,000 people in the UK. Each week five babies are born with Cystic Fibrosis and two young lives are lost.

We have done many ‘challenges’ since we started, varying from half marathons, full marathons, swimming in the River Thames, coffee mornings, and much more! The money raised so far has enabled us to buy lots of equipment and toys for the CF team and the Play Specialists on the children’s ward at the hospital. This includes an Airway Clearance System which was our first goal and cost £7,000. Lots of the equipment and toys purchased are used to help the children with their daily physiotherapy both at home and while admitted at hospital. You can see more about the items we’ve donated on our ‘blog’ page.

Our goal is to support the children and their families by buying essential equipment that the CF team don’t have the budget to buy. These items will help make the children’s day to day lives a bit easier and hopefully in some cases, add some fun!

If you would like to take part in an event on behalf of Anna’s Challenges, make a donation or sponsor somebody who is already doing something for us, you will find all you need on this site. Why not go to our ‘Events’ page and see what events we have planned for the future? If you would like to participate, please let us know!

We also have information on Cystic Fibrosis if you would like to learn more and also read stories from other parents of children with CF here.
