Our Xtreme Hike Story
The CF Mountain Movers are now a team of nine! We are a pretty diverse group and we are all dedicated to making a difference for people with CF. We do this through our work for the UVA CF Center and now by being a part of the Xtreme Hike. Together we are raising funds and awareness to one day make CF stand for Cure Found!! Our team consists of a dietician, a nurse, a respiratory therapist, a mother (also our team QI leader) and father of a young man with CF, a daughter, who's mother lost her battle with CF, and a few supporters of their families.
With supporters like you by our side, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation continues to lead the way in the fight against CF, fueling extraordinary medical and scientific progress. The life expectancy of someone born with CF has doubled in the last 30 years. Despite this progress, many people with CF do not benefit from existing therapies either because their disease is too advanced or because their specific genetic mutations will not respond. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers who struggle every day in the face of this devasting disease.
We hike for them.
Will you join us?
Xtreme Hike is a fun event that provides a fantastic opportunity for family, friends, students, and colleagues to come together to make a difference in the lives of people with CF.
