About Our Xtreme Hike

We can’t wait to bring the CF community together for Xtreme Hike!! Our 2022 Xtreme Hike event will feature in-person and virtual experiences to help make a difference for people living with cystic fibrosis.
Please note every 2022 CF Foundation event will feature several virtual components in addition to our in-person event. Stay up to date on how our chapter plans to safely bring the community together and make CF stand for Cure Found by registering today. The safety of our community is our first priority and we are continuously monitoring the number of COVID cases in the area. If cases drastically spike, this in person event may be transitioned to fully virtual.

To minimize the risk of COVID-19 infection, attendees at CF Foundation events must adhere to the following requirements: Practice physical distancing and maintain at least a safe 6-foot distance from persons outside of their household at all times. Face masks are strongly encouraged and expected to be worn in accordance with local guidelines. To keep everyone safe, our safety meeting and post-hike reflection will both be virtual.

Here’s what you can expect for hike weekend:

Thursday, June 23rd: Virtual Welcome & Safety Training @ 6 PM
Saturday, June 25th: Hike in Truckee, CA or Virtual @ 7:30 AM
Sunday, June 26th: Virtual Post-hike Reflection @ 9 AM

Register. Register and participate in our Tahoe Xtreme Hike or participate virtually and help us stay the course and advance our mission. We look forward to coming together in-person and in spirit to show the strength of our community and passion to find a cure for all people living with cystic fibrosis.

Recruit. Recruit others to hike with you in-person or virtually (at a safe distance or even from another state). For those who are hiking virtually, you can participate anywhere!

Fundraise. Fundraise online by leveraging the tools in the Participant Center, the Fight CF mobile app, and Fundraise on Facebook to reach your goal. Create a virtual passion fundraising event by developing a fundraising event through your favorite hobby, activity, or passion.

Suggested Fundraising Minimum: $650 (Please note: For those fundraising for our Yosemite Xtreme Hike, funds raised under that hike will cover any suggested fundraising for the Tahoe hike).

Share your Journey. Wear a Xtreme Hike shirt, team shirt, or your Cystic Fibrosis Foundation branded apparel, while you hike! Track your activity on the Fight CF mobile app so you can hike with others participating in the event and across the country. Share how you decided to hike this year by sharing your story and posting a selfie on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Make sure to tag the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (@CF_Foundation) and our local chapter at (@CFFNorthernCalifornia) and (@CFFSacramento) and use the hashtag #XtremeHike to keep the energy and momentum going strong!

What makes the Xtreme Hike Unique?

Since 2012, the Northern California Xtreme Hike has hiked over 159 miles in iconic locations including Yosemite National Park & Lake Tahoe and raised over $990,000 in support of finding a cure to cystic fibrosis. For our 3rd year, we will be hiking in the beautiful mountains of Truckee, CA. Join us on this amazing journey to view new sights and climb higher heights.

As the name states, this is a challenge of extreme proportions. For many, you are committing to hiking further and raising more money than you have ever done before. As participants prepare for the physical challenge, hikers are encouraged to raise $650 through their personal and social media campaigns. Not to worry, we are here to support you every step of the way!

You will not want to miss this opportunity to meet like-minded individuals and challenge each other to help cure cystic fibrosis one step at a time!

Hikers ages 16 and up may participate. Click here to read the full Hiker Age Policy.
