Philadelphia CF Climb

About CF Climb

These past two years have been full of changes and challenges, and we have been so inspired by the strength and resilience of the Cystic Fibrosis Community. Thank you for continuing to show up and support our mission to cure CF.

We are thrilled to announce we will be back for an in-person CF Climb this Fall

CF Climb Philadelphia will look a little different in 2021 due to COVID-19 safety protocols, but we are excited to climb in-person this year! Participants may check-in and begin their climb on a rolling basis between 8:00 am - 10:30 am. We hope that this allows for easier distancing between parties as well as offer a bit more flexibility in everyone’s schedules.

All climbers must be checked-in by 10:30 am.

All Climbers must be registered through this website by Friday, November 19th in order to enter the stadium.

Once checked-in, participants may begin to climb as soon as they get approval from staff and volunteers at the start line. We will ask different groups to maintain a 6-foot distance while checking in and waiting to climb, and unfortunately this year we will not have a timing element as part of the official CF Climb. However, participants are still encouraged to time themselves on watches or phones.

More specific details and requirements will be sent to those who register by Friday, November 19th to ensure everyone's safety and well-being at this year's CF Climb.

Virtual Climber Option
In addition to the in-person CF Climb, we are also offering the Virtual CF Climb Challenge as an option for those who cannot make it to the stadium to climb on November 20th.:
Climb the same number of steps we do at Lincoln Financial Field - 1,200
Get outside and take a walk around your neighborhood, track, park or trail.
Virtual climbers will receive all benefits and recognition as in-person climbers.
