Sonoma County CF Cycle for Life 2020 Virtual Event

Learn more about this 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.

Fundraising Progress

Donate to Me

Raised: $6,295.00

Goal: $5,000.00

Welcome to my Page

This year's Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Cycle for Life will be held virtually! What is a virtual cycle you ask? There will be a kickoff on Facebook Live at 8am PDT on Saturday June 13, and then participants will go out individually and do... anything! Go for a long ride, go for trip around the block, take a spin on your exercise bike, or just get out for a walk. Julie and I would be honored if you joined Team Penelope to show your support. There is no registration fee or minimum fundraising goal.

Given everything that is going on in the world, now does not seem like the right time to push for donations for Cystic Fibrosis research. However, if you are moved to donate, here are two options:
- Make a donation to any charity that helps those that are in desperate situations due to the pandemic (such as Second Harvest Food Bank or GiveDirectly.org), or to help fight racial injustice (such as Equal Justice Initiative or NAACP), send me the details, and Julie and I will match dollar for dollar with a donation in your name to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. We are not putting a limit on donations we will match, and I dare you to make us reconsider that.
- If you would prefer to donate directly to Team Penelope, you can do so at this page.

(Donations can be made after the ride so if you're reading this after Saturday morning you still have options.)

Thank you for all of the love and support you have given Penelope and those fighting Cystic Fibrosis. We hope to be back to our normal vigorous fundraising efforts next year. Until then, stay safe and think good thoughts!

Matt and Julie
