Louisville 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.

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. There will be NO registration fee to participate virtually and only a suggested, not mandatory, fundraising minimum of $65 per participant.

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, August 2 through Monday, October 5 (65 days), we challenge you to climb 6,500 stairs/participate in any of the other challenge components. Whether you split it up between days or knock it out at once, everyone can be All in for 65 and support the 65 Roses Challenge! Join us on Strava to track your activity so we can all climb 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 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 the Kentucky/West Virginia Chapter (@CFF_kywv) use the hashtags: #CFClimb, #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 the conclusion of your event you’ll receive a certificate of completion and the option to redeem a reward 30 days post event.
