Our Xtreme Hike Story
Welcome to Team Antman - Together we can fight, we can demonstrate courage and hope, and we can do everything in our power to find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis!
Thank you for visiting the Team Antman Cystic Fibrosis fundraising page – we couldn’t be happier you are here!
Antman is our hero, our fighter, and the reason we fundraise.
Anthony was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis, a life threatening disease, through the Newborn Screening at two weeks of age. His fight with Cystic Fibrosis began with a hospital stay at three months old and hasn’t stopped keeping us on our toes.
Anthony is now 11 years and completing 6th grade, (middle-schooler!) which is absolutely crazy to me! I can recall sitting in the recliner of our Virginia Beach living room (we had just returned from the pediatricians where the results of his Newborn Screening and Cystic Fibrosis test results were disclosed) holding my precious two week old boy, reading online about this decease, simply not knowing if I was allowed to look forward to things like middle school. Here we are! Antman IS absolutely 11 years old and IS in middle school and I am sooo grateful for his health and life.
Anthony is a smart little boy full of strength, his courage often leaves me speechless, and his little heart is made of gold. While he is a smaller statured due to the struggles of gaining weight with Cystic Fibrosis, he has a large personality that is contagious and makes up for what he might lack in stature <3
The Cystic Fibrosis Xtreme Hike, Virginia Chapter is my fundraising home. Yes, we are about fundraising and finding a CURE for Cystic Fibrosis but they are also my family. It’s amazing the way we can create a ripple effect in life. Fundraising for Cystic Fibrosis lead us to our second family, the community of amateur auto racing folks.
Racebar (I have so much more to write!!!) is our home auto racing team, they have stood relentlessly behind Antman from the first day our paths crossed. Endless love, posters, cards, home cooked meals, and more during the hospital stays. Racebar performing in race events with Lucky Dog Racing League where Cathy Fuss and Caroline Motorsports Park fundraised and allowed Antman to throw the checkered flag and thousands of dollars were raised towards research for a cure!
Fundraising can happen as an outright donation, a recurring donation, sponsorship, showing up to one of these events, or helping us creatively find new ways to raise money and awareness for this cause. For my Antman, and for EVERYONE fighting to live with this disease, we need your support to find a cure.
100% of money raised by Team Antman goes to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Please make a donation and share this with your friends, family, coworkers, and well everyone! You can find us on social media, for more information and updates, please search Team Antman.
We won’t stop until a cure has been found for all.
Thank you for your love, thoughts, prayers, and financial support year after year. We absolutely could not do it without each and every one of you!
There are approximately 30,000 people in the United States living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. I hike for them, and hope that you will support me in my efforts.
Real progress has been made in the search for a cure, but the lives of people with CF are still cut far too short.
I am participating in the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Xtreme Hike to help raise funds and awareness for cystic fibrosis. Will you considering supporting me today?
Help me reach my fundraising goal by donating to my Xtreme Hike fundraising campaign. Your gift will help add tomorrows to the lives of people with CF.
