ROSE UP 2023
ROSE UP, now in its 4th year, is a virtual fundraising event created and led by adults with cystic fibrosis to bring the CF community together to raise dollars and awareness through creative, meaningful acts.
ROSE UP participants are encouraged to have fun and to get creative!
Participants should choose an activity that is meaningful to them to accomplish on ROSE UP day - running, walking, painting, baking, head-shaving, dancing, singing - and ask friends and family to support their efforts!
Together, we have made incredible progress toward our mission to cure cystic fibrosis. But we can’t stop now. Register today for ROSE UP and help us make CF stand for Cure Found.
Let’s cover our U.S. map with roses!
Each rose represents a member of our ROSE UP community!
