About Xtreme Hike

The DC Metro Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is proud to present the 2014 XTREME HIKE Program. Xtreme Hike is about reaching new heights — physically and philanthropically. 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.

In just one day, a dedicated team of Xtreme Hikers will hike a stretch of 25 miles to help raise funds and awareness for the CF Foundation's mission to find a cure for cystic fibrosis.

Cystic fibrosis is a fatal genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive systems of 30,000 children and adults in the U.S. More than 10 million Americans are carriers of the defective CF gene. The average life expectancy of someone with CF is about 37 years. There is no cure.


Included in your Support Package: 
  • Three month training program
  • Weekly team hikers in and the DC Metro area
  • Accommodations for 3 days and 2 nights near the trailhead
  • Transportation to and from the trial on Hike day
  • Aid stations along the trail stocked with food and hydration
  • XTREME HIKE wicking shirt
  • Pre-Hike Pasta Party
  • Post-Hike Celebration Dinner & Reception
  • Victory & Awards Breakfast

Each hiker is asked to meet the suggested fundraising minimum of $2,500. Upon registration, hikers will be asked to make a $100 registration donation which will be credited to your fundraising goal.
