30 MILES in One Day!

2019 marks the 10th anniversary of the Xtreme Hike for Cystic Fibrosis. This year 28 #CHOATEGOATS will take to the Appalachian Trail, rain or shine, for 30.1 miles of hiking on one very long day with the goal of raising money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Please help us by donating to one of our Hikers below:

About Cystic Fibrosis:

Cystic Fibrosis is a progressive, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and limits the ability to breathe over time.

In people with CF, a defective gene causes a thick, sticky buildup of mucus in the lungs, pancreas, and other organs. In the lungs, the mucus clogs the airways and traps bacteria leading to infections, extensive lung damage, and eventually, respiratory failure. In the pancreas, the mucus prevents the release of digestive enzymes that allow the body to break down food and absorb vital nutrients.

Because Cystic Fibrosis affects a small subset of the population, drug companies are not as incentivied to invest in reasearch for a cure, this is why we need your help.


In an effort to promote our fundraising efforts the Choate Goats would like to introduce Costume Level Sponsorship for the 2019 Xtreme Hike.

Why, you ask? Well, with the prospects of T-Rexes, Disney Princesses, Barneys, and Donald Trump masks making fundraising great again, we ask why not? Not to mention it is raising money for an exceptionally worthy cause.

How much? Any individual or organization that donates $3,000 or more may select a participating Choate Goat to wear a costume of their choosing for the last 10 miles of the hike. Costumes will need to be approved by an undisclosed panel for reasonable appropriateness. Footwear and backpack compatability is required. Should any hiker be requested by multiple supporters the costume selection goes to the highest bidder.

Please contact Adam Hawthorne at ahawthorne@choateco.com or 704-400-5150 with all Costume Level Inquiries


Choate Construction has set a $100,000 fundraising goal for the Xtreme Hike. Please help our team make CF Stand for CURE FOUND!

Thank you for your continued support!
