The Hiker’s Journey. The Central New York Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is proud to present the 2022 Xtreme Hike to cure cystic fibrosis! In just one day, a dedicated team of Xtreme Hikers will take on the Adirondack Mountain High Peaks to raise funds and awareness for the CF Foundation's mission to find a cure for cystic fibrosis. The Xtreme Hike experience builds fortitude and friendships, and tests strength and courage, and you will be provided with all the tools needed to reach your goals, both on and off the trail. Our group will have three different routes to choose from, ranging from 14 to 18 miles with 4,900’+ of elevation gain.

On Xtreme Hike weekend you will be treated to a three-day experience like no other. All hikers will enjoy accommodations for three days and two nights at High Peaks Resort in Lake Placid, NY. This includes an energizing, pre-hike dinner, grab and go breakfast, and a celebratory post party dinner. As participants prepare for the physical challenge, hikers are encouraged to raise $2,500 through their personal and social media campaigns. The Xtreme Hike is limited to 39 participants.

The journey of participation includes:

• Three months of training hikes
• Daily workout calendar
• Accommodations for 3 days and 2 nights
• Transportation to and from the trail on Hike day
• Fundraising prizes
• Pre-hike dinner
• Grab and go breakfast
