Our Xtreme Hike Story
Welcome to Elena's Entourage Hike Team!
This photo of our 2021 hike team gives you a taste of what you will experience if you hike: a beautiful day full of lively conversation, some singing, glorious scenery, a few blisters and some aches. None the less, you will walk away (I promise) feeling fired up knowing you accomplised something special that also helps so many. I hope that you will consider joining us!
Thank you to our 2021 teammates pictured here from left to right: Nate & Sarah Goonasekeram, Marianne Panke, Beth Sworobuk, Rose & Matt Jochum (my siblings), and team captain, Sue Lohsen.
Why are we doing this? For my daughter Elena & all those battling cystic fibrosis, we hike to raise money and awareness. The CF Foundation, our tireless warrior & trusted advocate, efficiently & effectively spends our donations on research that eases symptoms & searches for the cure. My daughter has directly benefitted from their good work; she would not have lived past 2 if not for the Foundation's research. So we also hike to say thank you for the additional years the Foundation has given to so many.
