We can’t wait to bring the CF community together for Wisconsin Xtreme Hike!

Xtreme Hike takes hikers through some of the most picturesque trails in Dodgeville, Wisconsin to raise funds and awareness for cystic fibrosis. This year, our Wisconsin Chapter is excited to announce our event will take place on Saturday, October 2nd on the challenging, scenic trails of Governor Dodge State Park. This park includes a large amount of diverse elevation, terrain, and scenery that you will certainly enjoy.

The Hiker's Journey

Our Xtreme Hike event is a long-distance, 20-mile hike that challenges participants to push their limits both physically and philanthropically. We ask all hikers to meet or exceed a $2,500 fundraising minimum to be able to hike that weekend for this logistic heavy event. This covers all hiker expenses for this weekend event including on route lunch, beverages, on-site medical assistance, fully stocked rest stops, hiker welcome items, hiker bag, swag, etc.

What Makes Our Hike Unique

Before Hike day, we encourage several practice hike locations in varied locations in Southeastern Wisconsin as well as a detailed workout calendar to help build endurance. On Hike day, hikers will be led by volunteer hike guides on the trail, following national park and COVID-19 standards, as they make their way from Bethel Horizons Camp & Retreat at our Starting Line through the varied routes of Governor Dodge State Park – in and out of caves, lookouts, waterfall, and a truly varied trail route. We include five rest stops hikers will encounter that are manned by additional volunteers that include an incredible amount of protein rich snacks, fresh fruit and vegetables, lunch, drinks, and first aid/medical volunteers. We are proud to include additions and new items each year to our rest stops and to our event overall!

We are incredibly fortunate to have the opportunity to bring together a dedicated group to this beautiful area, and sincerely want you there with us. This route, this weekend, this true comradery centers around hardworking individuals like yourself who are dedicated to these 20 miles and beyond.
