Canberra monuments are lighting up red for 65 Roses Day, highlighting cystic fibrosis.

Old Parliament House and Malcolm Fraser Bridge are turning red on Friday, Saturday and Sunday to show the capital’s support for the national awareness day.

65 Roses Day is part of a month long national campaign, the 65 Roses Challenges, that raises funds and awareness for cystic fibrosis.

Cystic fibrosis is the most common life-shortening genetic condition in Australia. It impacts the whole body, including the respiratory, digestive and reproductive systems. The flow on effects include malnutrition and mental health issues.
