About CF Climb

Help us EXTINGUISH cystic fibrosis while also having a great time at the StairClimb & Firefighter Challenge! Funds raised during the StairClimb and Firefighter Challenge will be put to work in laboratories, where researchers are working to find a cure for this genetic disease affecting the lives of more than 30,000 children and young adults in the United States.  This fun-filled fundraising event and festival offers a number of ways to get involved!

StairClimb - Go Vertical!! Sport enthusiasts of all ages and fitness levels are welcome. Climber can conquer more than 35 floors* at the Arizona Center.

All participants will get to enjoy the festivities including food and beverage, music, kids’ corner, corn hole and massages as well as an event t-shirt!

Civilian Challenge – Looking for an extreme Workout of the Day (WOD) that offers head-to-head competition with some of the most fit and intense firefighting athletes?  Often referred to as the toughest 2 minutes in sports, the Civilian Challenge offers participants the ability to compete in what is an exclusive race for firefighters, racing up stairs with a water hose, lowering the hose several floors, moving a steel bar (Kaiser) with a mallet, firing a blazing water hose at a small target, and hauling a 185 lb full-sized dummy 100 feet.

$75 – Registration Fee
$750 – Fundraising Minimum 

Firefighter Relay Challenge – Who among Arizona Firefighters are the fastest & fittest?  Firefighters from around the state compete in a relay race based on fire-fighting tasks commonly performed in emergency situations.  Spectators are encouraged to cheer on their favorite city as firefighters compete head-to-head to see which department is the fastest & fittest.  Firefighter Relay Challenge teams are comprised of 3 firefighters.
