Ryan will be raising money for Cystic Fibrosis Care. His son Arthur was diagnosed with CF at five weeks old and he understands the challenges and worries that CF can bring to patients and their families.

Cystic Fibrosis Care offer’s help to those with Cystic Fibrosis in most need, providing grants for those who are experiencing real hardship and difficulties living on low income with the aim to make life a little better in these difficult times.

Many CF families are in dire straits, struggling with the cost of living in food poverty, unable to afford the cost of travel to hospital and CF Care support many patients with hardship emergency grants with referrals coming only from the Specialist CF Team and social workers, so we are confident that the funds will reach those in most need, including:

Food voucher grants for CF families up to £150

Hospital costs and travel grants up to £250

Emotional support grants for £300

Hardship grants for £250

Get Involved

In recent years Ryan has been on a mission to learn all the tools, hacks and ways to be able to support not only his son’s health but his own mental, physical and emotional wellbeing.

When he started to realise the benefits of conscious functional breathing he decided he wanted to share, teach, guide and inspire others to implement this way of breathing for themselves.

He has trained as a functional and therapeutic breath coach with both the Oxygen Advantage and Integrative Breath. He is also a registered psychotherapist.

If you would like to donate, support or follow Ryan’s challenge then please donate or sign up for updates below.


Once he has completed his personal challenge, Ryan will be inviting you to set your own nose breathing challenge.

Whether this is a short walk around the block, a hike, a bike ride, a swim, a run or even choosing to consciously breathe through your nose in your everyday tasks. It all helps and supports you to enhance your mental and physical health.

Ryan will be supporting all that donate, follow or support his challenge through a series of live online Q&A sessions starting on Tuesday 13th September at 1900 GMT, where Ryan will talk about his journey to achieve this World Record Breaking challenge before taking any questions from the group.

Now is the time to learn the power of breathing. Let’s do it together.
