Our Xtreme Hike Story

As you may know, cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disorder that affects the lungs, pancreas, liver, sinuses and other organs. In 1997, when our family first learned this disease affected our children, Matt and Melissa, the average age of survival was 18 years.

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has made tremendous progress happen since then, and there are now treatments for managing and living with CF as a serious chronic disease rather than a certain childhood killer. We have come so incredibly far, but we are not done. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and our family, will not stop working until all people with cystic fibrosis have a cure. We will not leave anyone behind.

Because of the incredible generosity of our family and friends over the past 27 years, our family has celebrated so many joyful life events. We would really appreciate your help this year and donating is easy! Just click on the “DONATE TO ME” button above. 

If you are interested in a casual hike with us, we will be hosting our second “Weiner Walk in the Woods” on Saturday, October 5th starting at 9 am. The hike will start and end at our house and will be about 3-4 miles on the beautiful wooded trails encircling our neighborhood. Afterwards, you are welcome to enjoy a light breakfast! If you plan to join us in hiking, please email Janet at cfweinerroast@gmail.com for additional details.

As always, we are deeply grateful for your help. Your support for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has changed the trajectory of our children's lives forever and is tremendously important to us.

Our heartfelt thanks,
Janet & Harvey Weiner
