Cincinnati CF Cycle for Life 2020


About CF Cycle for Life

While the CF Foundation has suspended in-person events through the end of June, the cystic fibrosis community is finding new ways to come together. Please save the date for a national, virtual celebration of the CF Foundation’s 65th anniversary on Friday, June 5. Join thousands of others from the CF community on 65 Roses Day to celebrate 65 years of progress.

Plus, stay tuned for details from your local chapter on an upcoming virtual community pep rally. More information to come. We can’t wait to celebrate with you.
Looking for something to do while you practice physical distancing? Here’s a few ways you can show your support and connect with your local community –
Participate Virtually. Create your own at-home event – go for a walk in your neighborhood, hop on your treadmill, or spin on your bike. Maybe even start a dance party with your family at home. We know this is a hard time for families across the U.S. and globe, but you can do something to help others while staying safe.
Recruit. You can recruit others to participate in a virtual event with you as a member of your team.
Fundraise. You can continue fundraising online by leveraging the tools in the Great Strides Participant Center, the mobile app, and Fundraise on Facebook to reach your goal.
Share your Strides Pride. Wear your Cystic Fibrosis Foundation branded apparel, custom team t-shirt, or a past Great Strides shirt while you walk, run, or ride. Share how you’re participating by posting a selfie on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Make sure to tag the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (@CF_Foundation) and use the hashtag #GreatStrides #OKCGreatStrides to keep the energy and momentum going strong!
