Run for 65 Roses

Event Overview

Run for 65 Roses
September 14, 2013

Canterbury Park Racetrack and
Card Casino Longshots

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation cordially invites you to attend the inaugural Run for 65 Roses a derby-themed event created to raise awareness and funds in the pursuit of finding a cure for CF.

Our Inspiration for this event is the CF Community.
Our patient and their families and friends are the heart and soul of the CF Foundation. Everything we do is to support the development of new drugs to fight the disease, improve the quality for those with CF and ultimately to find a cure. But, our community inspired us to do more!

In the interest of hosting more events that our CF patients can attend, we have created Run for 65 Roses, an outdoor event with entertainment, dining, refreshments, and auction. Run for 65 Roses will not only be an exciting day at the races, but your attendance will help to add tomorrows for the lives of those affected by CF.

Because of risks to people with cystic fibrosis (CF), individuals who have ever had a confirmed positive sputum culture for Burkholderia cepacia (B. cepacia) complex shall not attend any Foundation events. These requirements are because CF germs can be passed between individuals who have CF. B. cepacia in a person with CF can cause serious respiratory illness and, in some patients, may lead to death. CF germs are not a risk for otherwise healthy individuals. At any outdoor event, people with CF should keep at least 6 feet away from others with CF.

Despite this policy, individuals with CF might choose to attend events without informing the CF Foundation or without the Foundation’s knowledge. If so, they do so at their own risk. The Foundation accepts no responsibility for any risk to health involved in attendance, or in any social contact between persons with CF. For more information, please visit

Important note on attendance for people with CF and their families:
The health and well-being of people with cystic fibrosis is our top priority. Medical evidence shows that certain bacteria can be passed between individuals who have CF and can lead to worse symptoms and speed decline in lung function. To limit the serious risk of cross-infection between people with CF, only one person with CF may be invited to attend the indoor portion of each CF Foundation-sponsored event.  For the outdoor portion of the event, people with CF should maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from each other.

Please note: People with CF and their families should be aware that individuals with CF might choose to attend Foundation events or meetings without notifying event organizers. We strongly discourage this; however, we cannot guarantee that only one person with CF will be present at any indoor Foundation event. For more information, please call your local chapter.
