My Xtreme Hike Story

I am returning to XTreme Hike this year to fundraise for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.  The benefits to funding research cannot be understated - new medicines and treatments have made large gains to extend life and greatly improve quality of life in CF patients.  My close friends have a 12-year old daughter fighting CF and the newly approved (July 2021) Trikafta has made a siginifcant improvement in her life.  I had the priviledge of participating in this fundraiser (that they founded 10 years ago!) in 2019, and look forward to it again on October 1.

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.

Please support me!

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!
