About Our Virtual Hike


How do I participate?

Register to Participate Virtually. Register and participate virtually in the 65 Roses Challenge 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.

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. We have a number of challenges and goals celebrating the 65th anniversary of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.  Watch your in box for physical challenges and individual and team fundraising goals with bragging rights and other great prizes! When you register for Xtreme Hike you will receive an invitation to join the private Strava Group to track your activity so we can all hike together, even though this year we will have to be 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 FibrosisFoundation (@CF_Foundation) and use the hashtags: #CFXtremeHike, #65RosesChallenge or #Together65 to keep the energy and momentum going strong!

Celebrate! We want to celebrate you and your participation in the 65 Roses Challenge! At theconclusion of your event you’ll receive a certificate of completion and the option to redeem a reward 30 days post event.
