About the Arizona 65 Roses Endurance Challenge

Join us as we hike, cycle, and climb 65,000 miles together again in 2021! Get moving with us all April long as we move in our communities and across the world, while sharing the awareness for CF and raising $65,000 to continue down our path to a cure.  You can participate from anywhere and help us raise funds right from the comfort of your own home, neighborhood park, closest stadium, or challenging mountain trail near you.

Once registered you will receive your welcome packet, bib, Strava Group invite and virtual passport, highlighting some of our top participants favorite trailheads and routes around the world.

Take the Challenge.

Beginning April 1st and ending April 30th, we challenge YOU to help us move 65,000 miles and raise $65,000 together over 30 days.
