Chief Executive Officer Lucinda Nolan is leading from the front, as CFA takes on its first Febfast. 

As of 10 February she’s ranked 16th out of the thousands of people taking part, having raised $850. The CFA HQ team is among the top ten overall teams.

Febfast is a health initiative that sees people stop their consumption of sugar and or alcohol during February. Previous participants report the health and lifestyle benefits include weight loss, better sleep, more energy and improved concentration.

Febfast also helps raise funds for the Youth Support and Advocacy Service (YSAS), which supports young people experiencing serious disadvantage. Lucinda is on the YSAS Board and is a seasoned febfast campaigner. This time round she has given up sugar.

Lucinda said “it’s great to see so many CFA members from across Victoria taking part.

“Febfast can be a challenge but also incredibly fun, and a real bonding experience.

“So far we’ve raised more than $3000 and are well on the way to meeting our target of $5000. All the money goes to a great cause.”

Each region and Burwood Headquarters have a Febfast team registered.
