About CF Climb

How do I participate?

Register to Participate Virtually. Register and participate virtually at our virtual Tower Climb on January 30th, and help us stay the course and advance our mission in an uncertain time. While we can’t be together in person, we can be together in spirit and participate virtually - showing the strength of our community and passion to find a cure for all people living with cystic fibrosis.

Recruit. Recruit others to participate with you (at a safe distance or even from another state). Now that we are virtual, you can participate anywhere!

Fundraise. Fundraise online by leveraging the tools in the Participant Center, the mobile app, and Fundraise on Facebook to reach your goal. Create a virtual passion fundraising event by developing a fundraising event through your favorite hobby, activity, or passion.

Climb. Join us on Saturday, January 30th as we virtually climb together! Going virtual this year means that we are fortunate to host our CF Climb all over the world. The very first step you can take is choosing your destination you plan to virtually climb your 952 steps on January 30th!

Whether it be climbing the stairs in your home, a local stadium or park, or even accomplishing these steps through a walk or run, every step counts. On Saturday, January 30th, we will be kicking off our Climb virtually at 8:30am and celebrating everyone’s steps with a closing ceremony to include awards, on Facebook Live that afternoon. So, lace up your shoes, and get stepping!
