About Xtreme Hike
Registration for Xtreme Hike is now closed. However, you can still raise funds
for important research by registering as a virtual hiker. Virtual hikers are
welcome to attend all the training sessions and social events during the Xtreme
Hike season. However, event weekend has reached its capacity, so virtual hikers
will not be able to join for event weekend. If you would like to be placed on a
waiting list, in the event we have cancellations, please contact Colleen,
Development Director, at (314) 733-1241 or email@example.com.
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. Consider making a $100 tax-deductible donation to kick-start your fundraising. 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.
