AZ StairClimb


About Our AZ StairClimb

We can’t wait to bring the CF community together for the 42nd annual Arizona StairClimb! Join us in-person on Saturday, Oct. 1st to conquer more than 2,000 steps at ASU Sun Devil Stadium.  We challenge you to take steps toward a personal victory, and to play an important role in the lives of those living with cystic fibrosis. 

Register. Register to participate in-person in this year’s Arizona StairClimb event and help us stay the course and advance our mission. Stay up to date on how our chapter plans to safely bring the community together and make CF stand for Cure Found by registering today.  

Recruit. Recruit others to participate with you! Friends, family, and co-workers can join you virtually from anywhere in the world.

Fundraise. Fundraise online by leveraging the tools in the Participant Center, the Fight CF 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.

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 (@CF_Foundation) and use the hashtag #CFClimb to keep the energy and momentum going strong!

Celebrate.  After the climb, we will host a celebration in-person!  Contact your local chapter to learn more.
