Life-saving drugs for cystic fibrosis (CF) are available around the world — but here in Canada they are being held back by government red tape. We need your help to end the wait!
Transformational medications Orkambi and Kalydeco have been held up by the provinces for years, and without your help today, the “miracle drug” Trikafta could soon be tied up in the same red tape.
These drugs have the potential to improve lung function and reduce progression of symptoms, and Trikafta can significantly improve and lengthen lives – it’s the single biggest breakthrough in CF treatment history! Without immediate access to Trikafta and other CF drugs, people living with CF face more sickness, hospital visits and deaths.
Supporters like you helped us achieve the first milestone to bring Trikafta to Canada, and you can help us go further! By adding your name, you’ll join thousands of Canadians from coast-to-coast demanding that provincial governments make these drugs available for everyone who needs them.
While medications have been caught in red tape here at home, some Canadians have gone to the United States to save their loved ones. No Canadian should have to leave the country to access life-saving drugs!
As we head into May — Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month — will you help us reach our goal of 30,000 signatures by May 31st? Sign the petition and tell your province to end the wait for life-saving CF drugs.
When the decision was made to cancel the 2020 Robbie, applications were on pace to match recent years, and we projected over 400 Festival and International Tournament teams. While there is no soccer this year, the Robbie will still be making a donation to Cystic Fibrosis Canada. Since 1967 the Robbie has been donating proceeds from the annual Festival and International Tournament, to date almost $2-million.
We want to thank the following teams for donating a portion of their 2020 application fees to support Cystic Fibrosis Canada: Dixie SC G16, GPS Academy B15, Heads United G14, Cobourg Northumberland United B10, Oakridge SC G14, Dorchester SC G14 and Pickering FC G9.
In addition the Robbie thanks the following teams for agreeing to carry over their 2020 application fee to next year: Guelph SC G10 T1 & T2, and Alliance FC G11.
These donations and carry forwards will allow the Robbie to make a larger donation to Cystic Fibrosis Canada while keeping an adequate reserve to cover ongoing operating expenses till next year.
CF is a genetic disorder affecting lungs making it difficult to breath and affecting the digestive system making it difficult for those living with CF to absorb sufficient nutrients. When the Robbie began few born with CF lived long enough to start school. Now some 50+ years later the median survival age in Canada is the mid-50s, but CF is still ultimately a fatal disease.
Those who volunteer with the Robbie every year know that their efforts and the monies donated by the Robbie make a difference in the lives of individuals living with CF and for their families. Than k you again to the teams who stepped up to help the Robbie continue its tradition of donating to Cystic Fibrosis Canada.
The Robbie would like to thank the teams that have chosen to donate a portion of their refund to the Robbie.

About 10 years ago CF Canada established the Robbie Grant for Most Promising Area of New Research, an honour the Robbie is very proud of. When the Robbie began almost no one born with CF lived long enough to start school. Now some 50+ years later the median survival age in Canada is the mid-50s. But CF is still ultimately a fatal disease.

2021 The Robbie Soccer Festival & International Tournament
The Robbie Committee continues to meet on a regular basis preparing for the 2021 Tournament and Festival weekends. We thank everyone for their continued support of the Robbie Tournament and Festival in 2020. We were able to give a $10,000.00 donation to Cystic Fibrosis towards finding a cure for this disease. Please look for communications during the coming months from the Robbie with themes of soccer and community support and updates about our upcoming 2021 Tournament.
We have listed our Tournament dates for 2021 however please remember that we are in a “hold pattern” and we will not be able to launch our registration portals for the 2021 competition until we receive clearance from the City of Toronto, Public Health, our Provincial government and Ontario Soccer.
Nevertheless, the Robbie Committee is on your behalf creating and developing a vibrant and exciting competition and program in 2021. We look forward to your participation in the 2021 Robbie celebrating 55 years of partnership in raising funds for research in finding a cure for Cystic Fibrosis while enjoying “the beautiful game”.
The Robbie is monitoring the coronavirus situation. As of March 27, we are continuing to plan for both the Festival (June 20 & 21) and Tournament (June 27-29), and are accepting new applications. Currently Canada/Ontario Soccer have suspended all soccer. Ontario Soccer has issued another Action Bulletin cancelling all April activities and events. Teams that have registered will be contacted by email with any updates. Please do not call the Robbie, assume that the events will be held as scheduled unless informed otherwise. Thank you for your understanding. Stay well everyone.
