Why We Hike
By participating in Xtreme Hike, you’ll support the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s mission to cure cystic fibrosis and to provide all people with the disease the opportunity to lead full, productive lives by funding research and drug development, promoting individualized treatment, and ensuring access to high-quality, specialized care. Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a life-threatening genetic disease that primarily affects the lungs and digestive system. An estimated 30,000 children and adults in the United States (70,000 worldwide) have CF. Join us in the fight to make CF stand for Cure Found.
