Thank you hikers, volunteers and sponsors for a memorable 28+ mile hike in the Berkshires. Check out the meaningful recap from new hiker Juanita Ferro:
"Wow! That was one of the best weekends of my life! I needed this. It was SO healing! The camaraderie, the energy, the excitement! I could barely sleep the night before the hike, I was so excited. And the hike! Holy moly! That was an intense hike, and I realized, even though I finished it, I need to get myself into better shape for next year.
I am overjoyed that I was included in this. Every little thing was taken care of, and the hikers are treated like gold. What a fun and exciting weekend!
It felt good and it felt right to be a part of a group that we all understand a significant part of our lives have been affected by CF."
See you all next year.

Join us for the 8th Annual XTREME HIKE for an inspiring and life-changing 26+ mile hike in the Berkshires.The picturesque Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort, Hancock, Massachusetts hosts this spectacular 3-day event.The natural beauty of the resort makes the perfect mountainside setting to challenge yourself and build friendships along the way.
Xtreme Hike is about reaching new heights physically and philanthropically. It is a journey of passion, determination, and personal triumph, as much as it is an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of people with cystic fibrosis.
Participants train for three months leading up to the event; a three-day adventure. On Friday evening, hikers receive an itinerary, safety information, and the camaraderie begins. On Saturday, hikers rise before day break to experience the raw beauty of watching the sun rise while they hike. When crossing the finish line, they feel a sense of amazing accomplishment.The weekend finishes with the Victory Celebration Brunch early Sunday morning.
As participants prepare for the physical challenge, hikers are encouraged to raise $2,500 through their personal and social media campaigns.The Xtreme Hike is limited to 65 hikers so register early.
