Gateway Xtreme Hike Fall 2017


About Xtreme Hike

In 2016, 57 hikers participated in our 4th annual Fall Xtreme Hike event, hiking 30.1 miles in just 1 day to raise awareness and vital funds towards the CF Foundation’s mission to find a cure for cystic fibrosis. During the 3 months leading up to Xtreme Hike Day, these hikers trained as a team under the guidance of experienced hike coaches, while raising over $201,700! 

We’re thrilled to offer this life-changing experience once again in the Fall of 2017!
