We can’t wait to bring the CF community together for Xtreme Hike!
This year we are hiking virtually and safely in-person at the 2nd Oregon Xtreme Hike. For hikers joining us in-person, we will be hiking the bucket list worthy 30.2 mile Wildwood Trail in Forest Park in Portland. See the Route Map with Elevation Guide information in the Event Details section to the left.
Every 2021 CF Foundation event will feature several virtual components and experiences to help make a difference for people living with cystic fibrosis. The CF Foundation will also host a very small number of in-person events that can safely be held outdoors, including our Oregon Xtreme Hike.
Register today and stay up to date on how our chapter plans to safely bring the community together and make CF stand for Cure Found.
The Hiker’s JourneyThe Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Xtreme Hike program 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. Hikers ages 16 and up may participate. Click here to read the full Hike Event Policy.
The journey starts the moment you sign up. You will receive personal coaching, participate in training hikes even virtually - and connect with a community of people who share your aspiration to reach new heights.
