Share your Journey. Wear a CF Climb shirt, team shirt, or your Cystic Fibrosis Foundation branded apparel, while you participate with us or climb the steps in your home!  Track your activity on the Fight CF mobile app so you and your team can climb together and with others across the country. Share how you are participating by sharing your story and posting a selfie on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.  Make sure to tag the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (@CFFoundation) and use the hashtag #CFClimb to keep the energy and momentum going strong!
