Miles for CF is proud to introduce BreatheStrong+ – a year-round, virtual wellness program focused on fitness and nutrition as well as the impact wellness has on mental health.

Join the CF Community to get motivated and rewarded for making wellness a priority all year! All ages are welcome. Children under 13 are required to have parental permission.

When you register, Charity Footprints automatically creates your fundraising and fitness progress page. We encourage you to share your fundraiser page to help support Miles for Cystic Fibrosis, but fundraising is not required. The platform offers other features including chat, leaderboards and a scrapbook photo sharing area.


BreatheStrong+ is Beaming! Thanks to the generous support of the Helen M. Eisenman Fund, free access to adult Beam CF classes is now available exclusively through the BreatheStrong+ program through September 30, 2024.

With the addition of Beam on-demand classes and watch parties, BreatheStrong+ now provides education, motivation, AND how-to resources to make good health a habit year-round.

Beam CF helps people living with cystic fibrosis through classes designed to improve physical and emotional well-being. Beam instructors are specialists working in or living with CF. Beam offers hundreds of on-demand classes to help improve strength and cardiovascular fitness, assist in airway clearance and breathing, build better posture and stronger bones, and so much more.


When you register for BreatheStrong+, your registration confirmation will include a unique code to enter at Beam CF for your free access. If you can’t find your code, please email

We are so grateful to the Helen M. Eisenman Fund for their support of this important program.

A Point-Based Program

Participants earn points toward incentive prizes in three ways:

  1. Fitness activities
  2. Fundraising for Miles for Cystic Fibrosis (fundraising is encouraged, but not required)
  3. Participating in fun wellness challenges and building other healthy habits

All of your fitness, fundraising and wellness points add up to make your total Footprints!

For example, when you’ve accrued 1,000 Footprints, you’ll receive an exclusive BreatheStrong+ t-shirt! It’s easy to keep track of all your points by connecting an activity tracker (Fitbit, Garmin, Apple Watch, etc.) or by manually entering data.

Use our convenient fitness minutes to miles conversion and wellness activity points charts to see how easily you can rack up your point for prizes.
