Chicago 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

How do I participate?

Register to Participate Virtually. Register and participate virtually and help us stay the course and advance our mission in an uncertain time. While we can’t 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. There will be no registration fee to participate virtually and any fees paid prior to this announcement will be credited to your fundraising efforts. We will kick off our ride together on Facebook live the morning of our event.
Recruit. Recruit others to participate with you (at a safe distance or even from another state). Now that we are virtual, you can participate anywhere!
Fundraise. Fundraise online by leveraging the tools in the Participant Center, the 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.
Take the Challenge. Beginning Sunday, July 19 through Friday, August 14, we challenge you to our Cruisin’ for a Cure Challenge. Join us on Strava. We have put together a CF Cycle For Life 2020 club so we can all train and ride together, even though this year we will have to ride apart.
Share your Journey. Wear your Cystic Fibrosis Foundation branded apparel, custom team t-shirt, or a past event shirt while you walk, run, or cycle. Share how you’re participating by sharing your story and posting a selfie on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Make sure to tag the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (@CF_Foundation) and use the hashtags: #CFCycleforLife, #65RosesChallenge or #Together65 to keep the energy and momentum going strong!
Celebrate! We want to celebrate you and your participation! At the conclusion of your event, you’ll receive a certificate of completion and after October 5th, you’ll have the option to redeem a reward. Share your success on social by tagging the CF Foundation (@CF_Foundation) and use the hashtag: #CFCycleforLife
Suggested Fundraising Minimum: $200
