Welcome to Rock CF’s Big Weekend!
It has been a Rock CF tradition to host our annual Rivers Half Marathon in Grosse Ile, MI as an effort to bring together runners and walkers from all over the country and internationally (shoutout to our Canada crowd!) for a day full of fun, goal smashing and fundraising for the foundation’s numerous programs. Due to the climate of the pandemic, we opted for a virtual race last year. For all of those who participated in our 2020 virtual race: we cannot thank you enough for your ongoing support for Rock CF. We will be hosting a virtual run in 2021, but this year we’ve got a challenge for YOU.
In March 2021, it’s time to go BIG: 65,000 miles. We challenge you to run, walk, cycle, swim or row as many miles as you can between Friday, March 26th – Sunday, March 28th to contribute to the total event goal of 65,000 miles. As a participant, you will have the ability to upload your miles and track your progress as well as the entire event’s progress. Simply log onto your personalized dashboard and upload after each activity. We will share your event progress and amazing efforts across all of our socials to keep the fun going!
The next piece of the challenge comes in the form of fundraising! And yes, this challenge will have its perks. We set a total participant fundraising goal of $25,000. Last year, we had over 2,000+ virtual registrants… What if we all raised $100 each?
Within your dashboard, you will have the ability to create a fundraising page to track your efforts and share them along with your social and email channels. 100% of all proceeds will go towards the various Rock CF programs like Kicks Back, where we donate a pair of shoes to ANYONE living with CF around the globe. If you have any questions regarding any piece of the challenge, activity uploading or fundraising, shoot us an email at [email protected]
With your registration, you will receive a rockin’ Big Weekend tech long-sleeve by USA-based Runyon apparel. Downloadable race bib (coming soon!) and plenty of add-ons to pickup during registration!
PLEASE NOTE THAT RACE GEAR INCLUDING THE LONG SLEEVE WILL BE SENT OUT AFTER THE RACE WEEKEND, REGISTRATION IS OPEN UNTIL THE FINAL DAY OF EVENT.
