Sonoma County CF Cycle for Life 2020 Virtual Event

IMPORTANT NOTE: To protect the health and well-being of the cystic fibrosis community and CF Foundation staff during the COVID-19 outbreak, the cystic fibrosis community is finding new ways to come together through virtual experiences. While we will not 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.

How do I participate?

Are you trying to find ways to fundraise and earn your Cycle for Life Jersey? Check-out our 65 day challenge below to help you hit the new $500 goal (instead of $750) to earn your 2020 Cycle for Life Jersey. Fundraising continues throughout the year.

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. There will be no registration fee to participate virtually and any fees paid prior to this announcement will be credited to your fundraising efforts.

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!

You can also join our local 65 Day Challenge to raise $650 in 65 days or create a virtual passion fundraising event by developing a fundraising event through your favorite hobby, activity, or passion.  

Take the Challenge. Did you know that there are 65 days between the 4th of July and Labor Day? In honor and celebration of the 65th anniversary of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, we are asking you and your team members to take on a 65 Day Challenge to raise $650 in 65 days. First, choose your challenge. Here are some ideas:  

  • Walk, run, hike, or ride 65 miles in 65 days  
  • Cook or bake 65 new recipes in 65 days 
  • Listen to 65 new songs, podcasts, and/or audio books in 65 days  

Next, ask your supporters to help you raise $650 by taking on the 65 day challenge. You just need 10 friends, family, or team members to raise or donate $65 each. Join us on Strava to track your activity so we can all walk together, even though this year some of us have to be apart.
