About Our CF Climb

Arizona StairClimb is a challenging and unique fitness event where participants climb more than 2,000 stairs at ASU Sun Devil Stadium in a test of endurance and time. Prizes will be given to the first, second and third place winners. Whether climbing to improve timing, test your endurance and see how you stack up or to simply cross the finish line, this event is a great way to spend the day with co-workers, friends, or family while "Adding Tomorrows" for people with cystic fibrosis. At the end of the climb, participants celebrate at the tailgate party with delicious food, music and much more!

Register. Register to participate in-person or virtually at a CF Climb event and help us ensure that everyone with CF has the chance to live a long, healthy life.
