WhAT IS CF|24?

CF24 is a national fitness event & fundraiser that brings communities together in support of Special Olympics Canada Foundation.

Since 2012, participating gyms have opened their doors to members, fitness enthusiasts, business professionals, local influencers and more to take part in a series of 24 workouts in 24 hours, raising pledges and awareness in support of Special Olympics.

A highlight for every participating gym is the visit each facility receives from their local Special Olympics chapter. Athletes with intellectual disabilities will join the event for an inclusive workout, demonstrating their athleticism, determination, and sharing their story of overcoming adversity through sport.

Together, CF24 supporters have raised over $1 million for Special Olympics Canada Foundation since inception.

While we sadly can’t gather for events in 2020, support from CF24 2019 has help ensure that Special Olympics chapters could stay strong during the COVID-19 pandemic, providing virtual programming and support to athletes at home.
