About Our Event

Welcome to our 3rd annual 65 Mile Challenge! We challenge you to move 65 miles over the course of 6 weeks while fundraising to find a cure for CF. This can be any kind of movement, running, cycling, walking, kayaking, and more! You have from June 18th through July 30th to log your miles. So remember, “Movement is Medicine”.

Register. Register to participate in-person or virtually in this year’s event and help us stay the course and advance our mission. Stay up to date on how our chapter plans to safely bring the community together and make CF stand for Cure Found by registering today..

Recruit. Recruit others to participate with you! Friends, family, and co-workers can join you virtually from anywhere in the world.

Fundraise. Fundraise online by leveraging the tools in the Participant Center, the Fight CF 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 event shirt, team shirt, or Cystic Fibrosis Foundation branded apparel while you participate with us or virtually! Track your activity on the Fight CF mobile app so you can participate with others in the event and across the country.
