Your Impact

Despite progress in cystic fibrosis research, some people still require over 60 tablets daily to manage their condition. There is still no cure.

The event started as a tribute to Glenn Brown, a Kalgoorlie school boy, who sadly lost his fight to cystic fibrosis at just 15 years of age.

The Melbourne Cup Lunch has raised over $611,000. Every dollar raised goes into funding research projects within Western Australia.

The Glenn Brown Memorial fund was established, supporting research into the cause, prevention and treatment of cystic fibrosis.

Funds raised have supported 10 research projects and 46 scientists, doctors and students.

Our mission is to support life-changing research, aspiring towards one day finding a cure and honouring Glenn's legacy.
