Why We Hike

In 2009, avid hikers and longtime Foundation supporters, John Barlow and Amos Beason presented themselves with a challenge: hike 30 miles in a single day to give hope to those who may never have the opportunity to experience the thrill of climbing a mountain or the wonders of the outdoors.  After a long and grueling day of hiking, they accomplished their goal and their passion has inspired hikers throughout the CF community and beyond to continue hiking until a cure is found.  In just five short years, the XTREME HIKE program in Charlotte has raised more than $1.7 Million for vital CF research, care and education.
