My Xtreme Hike Story

I had the most heart-warming experience this past April.  I attended a magnificent wedding for the son of a good friend. I realize that except for the couple, their parents, family and friends, a wedding is a common event.  But this wedding was different.  The 30-year-old groom was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis as a baby and the prospects of marriage was by no means a given. So here I was on this beautiful spring day witnessing and rejoicing in a minor miracle.  Not only was he able to experience the joy of marriage, but he has a bright future with a woman he loves!

There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, and friends who struggle every day just to breathe. I hike for them. Will you join me and support my fundraising goal?


Real progress has been made for those who have CF, but there is still no cure for this devastating disease and many lives are cut far too short. We’ve come so far, but there’s still so much work to do. I will not stop hiking until all those with cystic fibrosis have a cure. We will not leave anyone behind.

We are at a pivotal moment in the history of cystic fibrosis and your support matters. With your help, we can invest our resources in research today, while raising funds for tomorrow, to ensure we have what it takes to reach the finish line. Together, we can make CF stand for Cure Found. Please help me reach my fundraising goal by donating to my Xtreme Hike fundraising campaign today!
