TLC4CF are delighted that the outstanding gymnasium equipment has finally arrived in the Limerick CF Unit physiotherapy gym!!!

The equipment has been tested and is already in active use. Feedback from patients is fantastic! We are indebted to the Ballycommon Sponsored Ride Committee and all our active fundraisers for their help in raising funds to equip our new unit.

A new research project to promote exercise and fitness may get underway for people with CF who attend UHL shortly and we hope everyone will get involved!
