About the Event:


Join us for the 2nd Annual CF Climb and join the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation as we climb our way to the top of the tallest building in Alabama, the RSA Battle House Tower in downtown Mobile, AL. Registration begins at 7:00 am and the Climb will begin at 8:00am. Race to the top (a total of 34 floors) and feel the rush of adrenaline. Immediately following, we will host the Survivor Party which will feature food, drinks and entertainment. We will present awards and prizes during the ceremony which will begin shortly after the last Climber has completed the event. Awards will be presented to top finishers and fundraisers.

Will you step up to the challenge?

How to Register:


Climbers can either form/join a team or participate as an individual. Climb teams come in all different forms: Public Safety (firefighters, police, military), Corporate Wellness Programs, Health and Fitness Enthusiasts, Family and Friends.

To register today for the CF Climb click here, or contact Tiffany Miller at (251) 436-0015. Please make sure to have your credit card handy for your registration fee.

Registration Fees & Fundraising Minimum:

In addition to a $25 registration fee participants have a minimum fundraising pledge requirement of $100*. If you meet the minimum prior to the event, we encourage you to continue fundraising. The typical participant raises $350. You have until one month after the event to earn great fundraising prizes. On event day, participants will have the option of providing a credit card, check or cash if they have not yet met the minimum pledge requirement. Those who choose to pay by credit card will have one month after the event to submit the remaining balance on the minimum pledge requirement before their credit card is charged.

*A pledge is defined as a contribution made by others to support you in meeting or exceeding your pledge requirement and not for you to pay directly.

All participants who individually meet the $100 minimum will receive a 2012 Climb t-shirt and complimentary registration for the 2013 event.

Registration fees are not tax deductible and do not count towards the fund-raising minimum and are non-refundable and non-transferable. Your Minimum Pledge Requirement is tax deductible and must be turned in on or before event date.

TIP - When registering you will be asked to state your fundraising goal (which you can change later). You may select any of the amounts from the pull down menu that are ABOVE the ride's minimum fundraising goal. If the minimum fundraising goal is not an option in the pull down menu, you will need to select the shaded block that is immediately above the minimum amount - and then type in any other amount above the minimum.

Because of risks to people with cystic fibrosis, individuals with a confirmed positive sputum culture for Burkholderia cepacia complex shall not attend this event. This is because B. cepacia can be passed between individuals who have CF through close proximity. B. cepacia infection in a person with CF can cause serious respiratory illness and, in some patients, may lead to death.

Despite this policy, there might still be some individuals with B. cepacia in attendance. B. cepacia is not a risk for otherwise healthy individuals. Learn more about alternative ways in which a person with B. cepacia can participate, or call the CF Foundation at (800) FIGHT-CF. Consult your CF care center physician with medical questions.

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.
