Climb For A Cure 31st Anniversary at IDS Center

The Challenge:

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is proud to announce its 31st year of going vertical to defeat cystic fibrosis. Help us make CF stand for Cure Found by recruiting your friends, family, colleagues and neighbors to join us at the Climb for a Cure.

When: Saturday, February 4, 2012

General Climb 9 am to noon

Public Safety Challenge 8 am 

Fitness Challenge 7 am

Where: IDS Center- 80 South 8th Street, downtown Minneapolis

   The Goal: 1280 Steps. 50 Floors. 1 Cure. Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a life shortening, genetic disease affecting approximately 30,000 children and young adults in the US. A defective gene causes the body to produce an abnormally thick, sticky substance in the lungs and digestive system that hinders the body’s ability to breathe and absorb nutrients. Currently, there is no cure. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is aggressively pursing a cure for CF by efficiently investing in cutting edge, life saving science

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
