About Our CF Cycle for Life

Every CF Cycle for Life participant is driven by a dream that all people with cystic fibrosis should have the chance to live a long, healthy life. By joining us at CF Cycle for Life, you can help make a difference for people living with CF. 

How you can participate:

Register. Register to participate in-person or virtually at a CF Cycle for Life event and help us ensure that everyone with CF has the chance to live a long, healthy life.

Recruit others to join you. Invite friends, family, and co-workers to join you in-person or virtually.

Share your story and start fundraising. Share why you are participating in CF Cycle for Life through email and social media, and ask your friends and family to support your efforts by donating. You can use the participant center, the Fight CF mobile app, or Facebook Fundraising to reach your goal.

Join us on event day. Come together with family, friends, and colleagues to celebrate our collective efforts and commitment to find a cure for all people living with cystic fibrosis.
