Surf for CF 2020


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.

Please join our 65 Roses Challenge, a fundraising and engagement effort that will help us stay the course and advance our mission in an uncertain time.

About Our Virtual Surf for CF 


How do I participate?

Register to Participate Virtually. Register and participate virtually in San Diego’s Surf + Turf 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. 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!

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.

Take the Challenge. Beginning Saturday, August 1 through Monday, October 5, we challenge you to choose your own surfing adventure. Whether you ride 65 waves, Surf 65 hours, or make your own challenge up, everyone can be All in for 65 and support the Surf + Turf 65 Roses Challenge! Join us on social media as we track your activities so we can all ride the waves together, even though this year we will have to be apart.

Share your Journey. Wear your Cystic Fibrosis Foundation branded apparel, custom team t-shirt, or a past event shirt while you walk, run, or cycle. Share how you’re participating by sharing your story and posting a selfie on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Make sure to tag the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (@CFFSanDiego, @CF_Foundation) and use the hashtags: #SurfNTurf65, #65RosesChallenge, #CFFSanDiego, #Together65, #GreatStrides, #SurfforCF or #CFCycleforLife to keep the energy and momentum going strong!

Celebrate! We want to celebrate you and your participation in the Surf + Turf 65 Roses Challenge! At the conclusion of your event you’ll receive a certificate of completion and the option to redeem a reward 30 days post event. Share your success on social by tagging the CF Foundation (@CFFSanDiego, @CF_Foundation) and use the hashtags: #SurfNTurf65, #65RosesChallenge, #CFFSanDiego, #Together65, #GreatStrides, #SurfforCF or #CFCycleforLife to let everyone know you completed your Surf + Turf 65 Roses Challenge.
