My Xtreme Hike Story
Hello and happy Xtreme Hike 2022!
This is my 8th Xtreme Hike in a row and the 10th anniversary of Xtreme Hike VA. I'm excited to rejoin this incredible family of people committed to finding a cure for Cystic Fibrosis.
That's right, we hike, you donate(we donate too), and all those dollars go straight to research and development for a cure.
Speaking of a cure, we are almost there!! There have been some remarkable discoveries and advancements the past 5-10 years that have already impacted the lives of people living with CF.
We are sooooo close to finding a cure, and we need your help.
In case you didn't know, my sister Erica passed away from CF in 1995, when she was 16 years old.
In 1995, the life expectancy was about 18 years old. Today, the life expectancy is 44 years old!!
That's incredible, but not good enough, we need a cure.
YOUR dollars are making a difference.
YOUR dollars are improving the quality of life for people.
YOUR dollars are saving lives.
I hike for my sister Erica. I hike for my friends with Cystic Fibrosis. I hike for all the CF Warriors. I hike for the families of these warriors. I hike for a cure.
Join me! You can come hike too. You can volunteer. You can hike virtually in your area. You can donate. You can change lives.
Thank you to everyone that has ever donated to me, thanks to those that donate every year, and thank you to everyone who will donate again.
Much love to all.
