Top Hikers & Teams

Xtreme Hike participants who go above and beyond in their fundraising efforts will earn the title of “top hiker.” They will receive special recognition online and on hike day.

What is a top hiker?      2014 Hike Blueprint:MILESTONE:1227

Any hiker can become a Top Hiker by raising $5,000 or more. Once you have raised $5,000, you will earn an award badge to display on your Xtreme Hike web page. You will also receive special recognition at your Xtreme Hike event.

Follow this easy plan to raise $5,000 and become a top hiker:

  1. Your initial registration donation will count towards your recommended fundraising goal -$100
  2. Make a $10 contribution for each training hike you go on (estimate of 10) - $100
  3. Ask 20 neighbors for $20 each -        $400
        $100
  4. Ask your boss to contribute $100 - 
  5. Ask 10 co-workers for $25 each -  $250
  6. Ask 20 family members (parents, siblings, or aunt/uncle) for $50 each -$1,000
  7. Ask 10 businesses (doctor, dentist, drycleaner, realtor, bakery, restaurant, etc.) for $100 each -$1,000
  8. Ask 20 friends for $50 each -$1,000
  9. Ask 20 people at your place of worship, community organization, book club or social group to donate $25 each -   $500
