Northeastern New York 65 Mile Challenge - Virtual

Albany 65 Mile Challenge

About Our Event

Want to find joy in movement while helping to fight Cystic Fibrosis? Returning on August 1st is the Northeastern New York 65 Mile Challenge! Participate in this virtual event by pledging to complete 65 miles (or any multiple of 65) over the course of 6 weeks. This can be running, walking, hiking, biking, swimming, or any other activity that can be tracked using the Strava app-a free app for you to download and use!

The six weeks of training will culminate on Sunday, September 12th where we will complete our miles and celebrate together virtually. Set any fundraising goal with a suggested minimum of $165. Recruit friends and family to join you in this physical challenge or to pledge donations for your miles completed!

Let’s work together to make CF stand for “Cure Found”. We will have fun badges of milestone markers and prizes for hitting fundraising and mile goals along the way! More information will be on our social media and in your inbox. Until then, register here and follow our Strava Club page!

Fundraising tips. Fundraise online by leveraging the tools in the Participant Center, including 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.

Share your Journey. Wear your event shirt, team shirt, or Cystic Fibrosis Foundation branded apparel while you participate!  Share how you are participating by sharing your story and posting a selfie on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.  Make sure to tag @CFFNortheasternNY on Facebook, and @CFF_NENY on Twitter, and use the hashtag #cysticfibrosis to keep the energy and momentum going strong!
