My Xtreme Hike Story
5 years ago I would not have really known what CF was until I met Danielle and Jan. I had the pleasure of witnessing the love between/of Jan and Danielle and was moved to pursue ANYTHING that set my soul on fire like their love did. When Jan was sick, I had the ability to "Stand By My Jan" and get involved in the CF world. Before Jan's passing, we wrangled up Mike Burke to come in and speak at the halftime of a basketball game at Fontbonne University, where I was coaching at the time. It's beautiful and scary how the world sets you up with the people you need in your life and Mike was one of them. Since then, Mike, who is a CF survivor, has challenged me and changed my life in all the best ways. I am so grateful that I get to do this hike for Danielle, Jan, Mike and all of those who affected by CF and the champions to continue to find a cure. Please consider donating or I hope this makes you at least want to research CF and find something worth fighting for!
Peace, love and belly rubs
