About Xtreme Hike
The Gateway Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Xtreme Hike program takes hikers through the beautiful scenic terrain on The Ozark Trail to raise funds and awareness for cystic fibrosis. Xtreme Hike is about reaching new heights — physically and philanthropically. Xtreme Hike is an endurance training and fundraising program that culminates in an exciting Expenses-Paid Weekend at the Wilderness Lodge Resort with a 30.1 Mile Hike taking place on September 13, 2014 in Lesterville, MO.
Xtreme Hikers are asked to raise $2,500 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. No prior experience with fundraising is necessary. We will provide you with the support and expertise needed to become a successful fundraiser. We encourage every hiker to kick off their fundraising by making a personal registration donation of $100. Last year, we had 32 hikers participate, and they raised over $110,000! Please don’t let the fundraising intimidate you – it is extremely doable and much easier than one might imagine.
Your life won’t be the same after you’ve participated in Xtreme Hike. 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.
