Sports Challenge

Event Overview

Sports Challenge
Home of the 2014 Super Bowl!
Saturday, April 20, 2013

Sports Challenge

Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to compete on the MetLife Stadium Field.

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Sports Challenge is a mini Olympic-style competition where 10-person teams from corporations, businesses and professional groups compete against each other in a series of fun, athletic events.

This half-day event takes place on the field at MetLife Stadium, home of the 2014 Super Bowl. Events include Team Jump Rope, Football Throw, Obstacle Course, Relay Race, Putting Contest and Tug of War. First, second and third place will be awarded.

Included with your purchase of a team of ten is a tour of the NY Jets and NY Giants’ locker rooms, continental breakfast and lunch.

B. Cepacia policy: Because of risks to people with CF, individuals with a confirmed positive sputum culture for Burkholderia cepacia 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 still might be some individuals with B. cepacia in attendance. B. cepacia is not a risk for otherwise healthy individuals. For alternative ways to participate and for information about this policy, please contact the CF Foundation at (800) FIGHT-CF or visit our Web site at 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.
