Event description

Description

Can our ten CEO Kitchen Chefs cut-it in the kitchen and raise funds and awareness for Cystic Fibrosis Queensland, supporting Queenslanders with this incurable disease.

Nutrition plays an important role in the treatment and management of cystic fibrosis. A person with cystic fibrosis must consume 120% to 150% more than the recommended daily food intake for their age and size. They consume a diet high in fats, salts and sugars and pay attention to the nutritional value of food to assist the absorption of vitamins to help fight infection.

Each CEO Kitchen Chef is challenged to fundraise a minimum of $5 000 and battle it out in a live culinary challenge at the magnificent Moda Events, Portside. Our celebrity CEO Kitchen Judges Josue Lopez and Javier Codina (Chef de Cuisine Moda Restaurant) will oversee the action to award the title of CEO Kitchen Master Recipe Chef for the dish with the best technique, flavour and that meets the nutritional needs of a cystic fibrosis friendly diet.

About our Cause

Every four days, a child is born with cystic fibrosis.

One in 25 Australians are carriers of the defective cystic fibrosis gene. It is the most common life shortening genetic condition, slowly shutting down the airway, lungs and pancreas. Many people born today with cystic fibrosis will not live beyond their forties.

Waiting for a cure.

People living with cystic fibrosis can spend the equivalent of four months of full-time work each year receiving treatment. They take up to 80 pills a day, undergo tough physiotherapy regimes, are admitted to hospital several times a year and constantly cope with debilitating lung and gastrointestinal symptoms.

There are over one million carriers in Australia alone and most people are not even aware that they carry this life-shortening genetic condition. Cystic fibrosis is a degenerative condition that affects the lungs and digestive system. The treatment for cystic fibrosis is lifelong, ongoing and relentless.

Cystic Fibrosis Queensland

As an organisation Cystic Fibrosis Queensland is the only not for profit charity providing advocacy, funding research and delivering support and services for the Queensland, Northern Territory and northern New South Wales cystic fibrosis community.

There is no designated State or Federal Government funding to support our cause. We rely heavily on the fundraising initiatives from partnerships with corporate and community.
