Virginia Xtreme Hike 2017


About Xtreme Hike

The 5th Annual Virginia Xtreme Hike will take place in the beautiful Shenandoah National Park.  Over the past years, nearly 150 participants have hiked and fundraised (over $300,000) to help fund a cure for cystic fibrosis.  We’re excited to present our 5th annual event, welcome many returning hikers, and introduce new hikers to this once in a lifetime opportunity!

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Xtreme Hike event takes hikers through some of the most scenic trails in the nation while raising 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 CF.
