We challenge you . . . to go beyond ordinary expectations . . . to take steps toward a personal victory and to play an important role in the victory of others. We challenge you to participate in the Stair Climb . . . Are you up for the challenge?

On Saturday, October 30, 2010 the Cystic Fibrosis (CF) Foundation - Carolinas Chapter will be holding its 1st annual Stair Climb Event. CF Climb for Life 2010 invites the fitness enthusiast to take the challenge of racing up 28 floors of the Wachovia Capital Center in downtown Raleigh, competing against time and other fitness oriented challengers, while raising money to benefit the CF Foundation.

Choose your race! You can enter individuals, or as a team. Participants will be awarded for: best time individual male/ female from each group as well as awards for richest team/individual and for fastest in age category.

Up for an extra challenge? Our Safety Teams can run the race in full gear! You must wear full entry gear, which includes boots, jackets, airpacks, and gloves, vests backpacks. Run the entire 28 floors yourself.

The Public Safety Challenge is a competition to see who can raise the most money for CF research. Many of the Wake County Fire & Police are on board with us along with our armed forces and they challenge YOU to beat their fund raising goal and their times in the race. The team who raises the most money wins a group prize. You and your team can make a difference!

Our goal is to raise $50,000 for medical research and care for individuals with cystic fibrosis (CF). You can help us reach that goal by being part of the Firefighter Challenge and being a participant in this incredible vertical race. Each participant is asked to set a fundraising goal of $150.

The mission of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is to assure the development of the means to cure and control cystic fibrosis and to improve the quality of life for those with the disease. Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disease affecting approximately 30,000 children and adults in the United States. A defective gene causes the body to produce abnormally thick, sticky mucus, which leads to chronic and life-threatening lung infections and impairs digestion. Currently, there is no cure. Dollars raised from events like Stair Climb help fund life-saving CF research. Let’s set an example and show our community that we are physically fit and committed to making a difference in the lives of those with CF.
