My Xtreme Hike Story

Hey all,

This is my ? 10th cystic fibrosis hike for a cure. 2020 has been a weird year, a sad year for so many reasons for sure. Our spring hike findraiser was cancelled, but here we are doing it in the fall. New place, new time of the year, new social distancing and masks but SAME GREAT CAUSE AND GREAT PEOPLE!!!!  Sloane and Schuyler both will be volunteering during the hike as well. As you all know this charity is extra special to me and my family. We have been involved with The cystic fibrosis foundation for many years. The people and families that we get to see, hike with are the very best people in the world. This is such a great cause and great group of people to see each year. This is the reason I keep coming back. 

Cystic fibrosis is a rare, life-shortening, genetic disease found in about 30,000 people in the U.S., which causes persistent lung infections and limits the ability to breath over time. Those living with this disease are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers all struggling each day just to breathe and live normal, healthy lives.

Sixty years ago, most children with cystic fibrosis did not live long enough to attend elementary school, but thanks to Foundation-based research and care, many people with CF are now living into their forties achieving milestones once though not possible, such as attending college, pursuing careers, and having a family of their own.

While there has been significant progress in treating this disease, there is still no cure and too many lives are cut far too short. By participating in Xtreme Hike, I am helping add tomorrows to the lives of all people living with CF today.

Please make a difference and support me by giving to my Xtreme Hike fundraising campaign today. If you would like to support me by doing a training hike that would be great too. If you are unable to donate and just want to say hey, thats great too. Thank you for considering!
