Philadelphia CF Climb 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 Climb

We Are Going Virtual!
While we recognize this is disappointing, our commitment to finding a cure for CF is unwavering. Our staff and Volunteer Leadership Team have been busy planning a virtual Climb to continue to raise awareness and funds for cystic fibrosis, because even amidst this global crisis, our mission to find a cure for CF still moves forward.

Register for the Virtual Climb
Start or join a team or sign up as an individual for the Virtual Climb at no cost. This will allow you to receive up-to-date information about the Virtual Climb challenges and prizes, and only participants registered on our website will be eligible to win.

Invite others to join your team
Even though we will not be climbing the stairs of Lincoln Financial Field together, we still believe we are stronger together and encourage you to grow your team! Encourage friends and family from across the country to join your team this year too and they can participate virtually.

Fundraise or donate $100.00 for CFF's mission to find a cure for all those living with cystic fibrosis
While there is no fundraising requirement, we are encouraging all virtual climbers to raise $100.00.

Complete the Virtual 65 Climb:
Climb, walk or run the equivalent of our four virtual locations anyway you can - whether it’s the stairs in your house or apartment building, the steps on your front porch, the bleachers at a local school or just the streets in your neighborhood.

Share your Journey:
Wear your Cystic Fibrosis Foundation branded apparel, custom team t-shirt, or a past event shirt while you walk, run, or climb. 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 hashtag: #CFClimb, to keep the energy and momentum going strong!
