My Xtreme Hike Story

  • Chase, Meg, Todd (L to R)

Welcome!

First off, thank you for visiting my Xtreme Hike Page! If you are here, you are curious, interested, and/or engaged. No matter the reason, you are appreciated.

This is year #2 hiking for me. If you supported last year and are back, thank you x2! If this is your first year of support, thank you!

The Ask

I have supported the CF foundation in a variety of ways over the years. Again this year, I am stepping up and putting myself out there physically and mentally and will complete the Xtreme Hike; a 26 mile 1 day hike through the mountains!

While I do this to event to raise awareness, I ask you to consider providing any monetary support that you are able using the "DONATE TO ME" button above. 

Your contributions WILL support the CF Foundation's goal of finding a cure!

My Connection 

 My connection to CF and my reason for supporting this journey of finding a cure is multifactorial, but first and foremost it is because of my brother - in - law, Chase. I admit, before meeting my wife, Meg, and her telling me about Chase and CF I had little to no knowledge of CF or the struggles someone with it and their families experience day in and day out, especially in the early years of life. Fast forward to when I went to nursing school and completing my pediatric clinical rotation and I was presented with exactly that - one of the patients I was assigned had CF and this particilar individual was acutely ill and her prognosis was poor. Conversation with Meg, Chase, and their family gave me a general understanding of how challenging CF can be, but this individual and their family put it directly in front of me and it was an experience that took my understanding, empathy, compassion, and desire to be an advocate for finding a cure for CF to a new level. No person and their loved ones should be faced with the challenges I saw in that situation. 


 Thank you (at least) 2500 times over!

 -------------- 

 There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, and friends who struggle every day just to breathe. I hike for them. Will you join me and support my fundraising goal?

 Real progress has been made for those who have CF, but there is still no cure for this devastating disease and many lives are cut far too short. We've come so far, but there's still so much work to do. I will not stop hiking until all those with cystic fibrosis have a cure. We will not leave anyone behind. 

 Please support me!

 We are at a pivotal moment in the history of cystic fibrosis and your support matters. With your help, we can invest our resources in research today, while raising funds for tomorrow, to ensure we have what it takes to reach the finish line. Together, we can make CF stand for Cure Found. Please help me reach my fundraising goal by donating to my Xtreme Hike fundraising campaign today!
