About Xtreme Hike
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's Xtreme Hike program takes hikers through some
of the most scenic trails in the nation to raise funds and awareness for cystic
fibrosis. Xtreme Hike is about reaching new heights --physically and
philanthropically. It's a journey of passion, determination, and personal
triumph, as much as it's an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of
people with cystic fibrosis.
The Virginia Chapter's Xtreme Hike, a pledge based fundraiser, is a 28 mile one-day hike. Hikers will explore the breath taking sweeping vistas of Dolly Sods in September, the perfect time of year to be in the mountains. Participants will also be challenged with the high-altitude plateaus in the Allegheny Mountains while taking in the views of wind carved boulders, heath barrens and grassy meadows. All hikers will enjoy accommodations for three days/two nights at the renowned Canaan Valley Resort. This includes an energizing, pre-hike pasta party, a post-hike Victory dinner and a an awards breakfast. In order to participate, hikers are encouraged to raise a minimum of $2,500. Xtreme Hike is limited to 55 hikers, so reserve your spot today!
