Virtual Run/Walk

 

Virtual race day: Weekend of 10/24
Location: Wherever you want!
Registration fee: varies by distance

This year marks the 65th anniversary of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, so let’s make it a special one! Infection control is more important than ever (and always is with CF), so we are hosting a virtual race.

This event gives us a platform to stay motivated, healthy and connected during this time of social distancing, while also allowing multiple people with CF to participate in an event together, without the fear of cross-infection.

 


What is a virtual race?

This year will be our inaugural year for the Team Amy Virtual Run/Walk. Between now and the weekend of 10/24, racers will log their miles on their own or with friends and family! Then, on “virtual race day,” the goal is to complete your personal mileage (see resources above or race suggestions below). 
 
We ask that all runners please post on social media and tag it with #65RosesRun so we can not only fundraise, but spread awareness!

We want as many people to get involved as possible, motivating ourselves to keep healthy and keep moving. So, do what you feel comfortable with and what you feel is an achievable personal goal.

 


Why join?

This is an amazing way for people to connect all over the U.S. to unite for an important cause through a common goal. We need connections like these more than ever before. So please, share your journey along the way and let’s motivate each other to achieve our goals together.
 
Through your support of events like these, CFF is able to fund critical life-saving research that would otherwise not be available; CFF receives little to no help from large drug companies or governmental grants, but the progress they are making towards a cure is incredible. At this rate and with your continued support, it won't be long before "CF" stands for "Cure Found."
 
We can see the finish line of a cure, so let’s run/walk towards it together!
 
Thank you!
