Our Team CF Story
Join our team and help add tomorrows for people with CF!
As a team, we are each pledging to complete 65 miles of activity over the course of 6 weeks. This can be any movement you love:running, biking, hiking, or walking. Whatever moves you, we are asking you to move. Join us on Strava, and let's see who can complete the most miles!
On top of that we are fundraising for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation! Your goal is $165 raised. Why $165? The number 65 has an important significance to people with CF. The “65 Roses” story dates back to 1965 when an observant 4-year-old, hearing the name of his disease for the first time, pronounced cystic fibrosis as "65 Roses." Today, “65 Roses” is a term often used by young children with CF to pronounce the name of their disease.

There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis -- a rare, genetic, life-shortening disease. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe.
