    febfast

    Febfast is a fun, annual fundraising event which supports Brisbane Youth Service and helps raise funds for vulnerable young people.

    This year we are encouraging friends and supporters of Brisbane Youth Service to get behind febfast by registering for febfast. The idea is very simple – you give up sugar or alcohol or something else of your choosing during February and get sponsorship for doing it. Funds raised will come to BYS to support vulnerable young people. Febfast is also a great opportunity for you and your organisation to “pause for a cause” and get healthy during February.
