About Our Virtual Great Strides Walk
WHAT: We are excited to invite you to be part of our virtual Northeast Texas Chapter's 65 Roses Challenge Road Trip, a fundraising effort that will help us get one step closer to finding a cure! We will be taking you through some great landmarks across the state of Texas and into Louisiana throughout the course of the challenge, so saddle up for a fun ride! Our chapter aims to raise $650,000 by the end of the challenge on September 26th.
As you may know, the global pandemic has meant that the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Northeast Texas Chapter has had to transition our Great Strides, Climb and CF Cycle for Life events virtually this year. The Foundation made this decision as we are putting the health and safety of our community first.
WHEN: Our 65 Roses Challenge Road Trip will run between August 14th – September 26th, with everyone showing off what they are doing for the challenge via social media throughout the campaign and on September 26th.
WHERE: From the comfort and safety of your own home and neighborhood. The beauty of being virtual this year is that you can have team members from anywhere in the world join you!
