DFW CF Climb 2020

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 our Virtual Climb

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!

1. SIGN UP for one of our Northeast Texas Chapter events.
2. During the registration, click the “Yes, I am taking on the 65 Roses Challenge Road Trip!” box.
3. COMMIT to your personal challenge for the 65 days!
Choose your challenge: walk/run/hike 65 miles, ride 165 miles, try 65 new recipes, draw 65 pictures, read 65 books! These are just some ideas, but it can be whatever you choose!
4. 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.
