Athletic Events


My stepdad passed away in April of 2023 from idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. I chose to do my fundraiser in honor of my stepdad and because many families worldwide need help, and the Foundation is and will be an incredible support.

Athletic community events

Get your community involved in an athletic fundraising event by hosting a donation-based fitness class or coordinating a tournament of your favorite sport!

First, choose your favorite sporting event or fitness activity. Some ideas include yoga, pilates, golf outings, or pickleball tournaments. After choosing your activity, you can contact your local fitness studios to ask about hosting a donations-based class or contact your parks and recreation department for information on possible venues for your event. Choose a date, determine how you will collect donations, and promote your event to your friends and family!


Individual athletic fundraisers

Participate in an athletic event that challenges and inspires you the most - running, walking, hiking, swimming, or riding - to impact the PF community!

Create your fundraising page to share why you are fundraising, provide training updates, and collect donations for every mile, foot, or lap you complete! Your dedication will inspire your friends and family to support you by donating to your campaign and cheering you on.

Our team is here to help with your event planning! Tell us about your event by filling out the Team PFF interest form. We will be in touch to provide you with tools and resources and to support you along the way!
