CF Cycle for Life Southern Arizona 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.

RECRUIT:  Recruit family, friends and coworkers to participate with you (at a safe distance or even from another state).  Now that we are virtual, you can participate anywhere so have them join your team.

FUNDRAISE:  Fundraise online by leveraging the tools in the Participant Center, the mobile app, and fundraise on Facebook to reach your personal goal.  Create a virtual passion fundraising event by developing a fundraising event through your favorite hobby, activity, or passion.

THE CHALLENGE:  Beginning October 1st though October 31st, we challenge you to complete the CF Cycle for Life, but the training begins the moment you register!  Whether you split it up between days, knock it out at once, or complete it several times over, everyone can be ALL in for the AZ 65 Roses Endurance Challenge.  Join us on Strava to track your activity so we can all ride together, even though this year we will be apart.  (Link to our private group will be shared after you register on the CF Cycle for Life website.)

SHARE YOUR JOURNEY:  Wear your Cystic Fibrosis Foundation branded apparel, custom t-shirt, or a past event shirt while you cycle, climb, or hike.  Share how you are 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 in the 65 Roses Endurance Challenge! Along your journey you will receive shout outs of your accomplishments.  At the conclusion of the challenge you will receive a certificate of completion and the option to redeem a reward 30 days post event.   We will also celebrate in November with a virtual party filled with FUN!  Share your success on social by tagging the CF Foundation (@CF_Foundation) and use hashtags:  #CFCycleforLife, #65RosesChallenge or #Together65 to let everyone know you completed your 65 Roses Endurance Challenge.  Don’t forget to send us your photos and videos – perhaps you may be featured in our virtual party!!
