The Metro DC Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is proud to present the 2014 XTREME HIKE Program. In just one day, a dedicated team of Xtreme Hikers will hike a 26 mile stretch of the Blue Ridge Mountains at Wintergreen Resort in VA to raise funds and awareness for the CF Foundation's mission to find a cure for cystic fibrosis.

We want you to be part of this once in a lifetime experience. As long as you're ready to make a difference, this is one adventure you won't want to miss! 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. Fitness enthusiasts of all levels who enjoy the outdoors are welcome to participate.

The Xtreme Hike Program Offers You:
