Ride today and Add tomorrows! Join us on Saturday, September 14th in St. Francisville, LA for the 4th Annual Aptalis CF Cycle for Life presented by BJ’s Restaurants. This year’s ride kicks off at Parker Memorial Park and allows cyclists the opportunity to ride through some of the most picturesque terrain in Louisiana. Cyclists from across the state will come together to enjoy scenic views of historic towns accented with gorgeous live oaks, blossoming camellias and antebellum plantation homes and gardens. You might even catch a glimpse of one of America’s most haunted homes, The Myrtles!
The Aptalis CF Cycle for Life is fully supported with well-stocked rest stops, bike mechanics, ride marshals, breakfast, lunch and a celebratory “Pedal Party” after the ride that you won’t want to miss. Cyclists can ride at their own pace on one of our three mileage options: 65 mile, 35 mile, or our 15 mile “fun ride”. All participants will receive a long sleeved official event t-shirt with their $150 minimum pledge requirement. Those who raise $500 or more will earn an official even jersey with the opportunity to earn bigger prizes the more they raise.
Registration is $25, with day of registration set at $35. To register today for or for more information, visit www.cff.org/chapters/batonrouge or contact our office at (225) 769-9994.
The CF Foundation thrives from the support of people like you to raise money to keep research going. Nearly 90 cents of every dollar of CF Foundation revenue goes to support vital CF research, medical and educational programs. Our efforts are showing very positive results as scientific research is making magnificent progress toward a cure for this illness.
Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disease affecting the digestive and respiratory systems of over 30,000 children and adults in the United States. The disease causes the body to produce thick mucus which clogs the lungs and can lead to life-threatening lung infections. Because the number of those afflicted with CF is lower than other diseases, there is no government funding offered. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is a non-profit organization whose sole priority is finding a cure for this disease and to improve the quality of life for those living with CF.
