Massachusetts CF Cycle for Life 2020 - Virtual Event

IMPORTANT NOTE: 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. While we will not 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.

About CF Cycle for Life

While COVID-19 has put the "brakes" on many social events, we cannot pause on our path to a cure. We are pleased to announce that we have re-imagined our Cycle for Life event.

Now is the time everyone can be All in for 65! While the in-person ride has been cancelled, we will remain stronger together. The Massachusetts and Rhode Island Cycle are combining to form an All in for 65 virtual event.

All in for 65 will be a 15 day at home event celebrating the 65th Anniversary of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Beginning Saturday, September 19 through Saturday, October 3, we challenge you to ride 65 miles. Whether you split it up between days or knock it out at once, everyone can be All in for 65!


1. Register: Although we are combining into one virtual event, the Massachusetts and Rhode Island webpages will remain separate. Registration fees for All in for 65 will be waived – any fees paid prior to website change will be credited to fundraising totals.

2. Show Others You’re All in for 65: Share how you’re participating by sharing your Cycle for Life page onSocial media.  Make sure to tag us at @cffmass-ri and use our hashtag, #CFLAllinfor65 to keep the energy and momentum going strong!

3. Fundraise: Our top priority is engaging our community and your safety. This virtual event has suggested fundraising minimum. However, the fundraising platform is available by leveraging the tools in the Cycle for Life Participant Center, the mobile app, and Fundraise on Facebook.

Dates: Saturday, September 19 – Saturday, October 3
Opening Ceremony: Time TBD – Saturday, September 19 on Facebook Live
Closing Ceremony: Time TBD – Saturday, October 3 on Facebook Live
Location: At Home

Suggested Fundraising Minimum: $250
