About Our Walk

How do I participate?

Register to Participate Virtually. Register and participate virtually in the Great Strides 65 Roses Challenge and help us stay the course and advance our mission in an uncertain time. 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.

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!

Fundraise. Fundraise online by leveraging the tools in the Participant Center, the mobile app, and Fundraise on Facebook to reach your goal. Create a virtual passion fundraising event by developing a fundraising event through your favorite hobby, activity, or passion.

Share your Journey. Wear your CF Foundation branded apparel, custom team t-shirt, or a past Great Strides shirt while you walk, run, or ride. Share how you’re participating in the 65 Roses Challenge by sharing your story and posting a selfie on Facebook, and Instagram. Make sure to tag the Orange County chapter (Instagram @CFF_OC and Facebook.com/cffoc/) and use the hashtags: #GreatStrides; #65RosesChallenge and #Together65 to keep the energy and momentum going strong!

Event Details: Monday, August 3, 2020 – Wednesday, October 7, 2020
