The Hiker’s Journey

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Xtreme Hike program takes hikers through some of the most scenic trails in the nation to raise funds and awareness for cystic fibrosis. Xtreme Hike is about reaching new heights physically and philanthropically -- it’s 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.

Join us for the Greater New Jersey Chapter 6th Annual Xtreme Hike on September 20-22, 2019. Xtreme Hike will take place on Saturday, September 21st on the Escarpment Trail, Catskills, New York. All hikers will enjoy accommodations for three days and two nights. This includes an energizing, pre-hike pasta party, pre-hike breakfast, post party dinner and a “Victory” breakfast on Sunday. 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 20 hikers.

The journey of participation includes:

  • Three months of training hikes
  • Daily workout calendar
  • Accommodations for three days and two nights
  • Transportation to and from the trail on hike day
  • Aid stations along the trail stocked with refreshing food and beverages
  • Official Xtreme Hike wicking shirt
  • Pre-hike pasta party
  • Prior to sunrise hike breakfast
  • Post-hike dinner and reception
