39th Annual IDS CF Climb 2020


About CF Climb

“Leap” into 2020 by joining us on February 29 for our 39th Annual IDS Climb, which is our chapter's longest running event! This challenging and unique fitness event allows participants to climb over 1,200 steps up the IDS Center in downtown Minneapolis! Whether climbing to improve timing or to simply cross the finish line, this event is a great way to spend the day with co-workers, friends and family while “Adding Tomorrows” for people with cystic fibrosis. At the end of the climb, participants will celebrate at a finish-line party complete with delicious food and great entertainment!
