As we continue through the year together, navigating changes and challenges, we are so inspired by the strength and resiliency of our CF community. Thank you for continuing to show up and support our mission to cure CF. Every decision that we make is based upon keeping our CF community as safe and healthy as possible. 

With that in mind, we are still planning on holding an in-person event for Xtreme Hike on Saturday, September 19th, while also offering a virtual opportunity. 

We hope that whether you join us in-person or virtually, you will engage with our mission, your team and fellow hikers. There will be fun challenges, both mileage-based and fundraising-focused! 

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Xtreme Hike program takes hikers through some of the most scenic trails in the nation to raise funds and awareness for cystic fibrosis. Xtreme Hike is about reaching new heights physically and philanthropically. It is a journey of passion, determination, and personal triumph, as much as it is an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of people with cystic fibrosis. Hikers ages 16 and up may participate. Click here to read the full Hiker Age Policy.
