While real progress toward our mission has been made, the lives of people with CF are still cut far too short. We need your support to help add tomorrows for all people living with the disease. Every hiker who joins us makes a difference!

Fundraising Tips

Once you’ve registered for Xtreme Hike, it’s time to start your fundraising campaign!

Raising funds is easy once you get started. Follow these simple steps, and you’ll be well on your way to meeting and exceeding your fundraising goal!

  1. Make a donation to yourself. It’s a great way to show your supporters that you are committed to the cause.
  2. Select your personal fundraising goal. Set a goal of at least $650 to become a top hiker, or set a goal of $20,000 or more to become a top team.
  3. Ask your friends and family to support the cause by registering to hike with you or by making a donation. The more support you have, the easier it will be to reach your goal.
  4.
