The Hiker’s Journey

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Xtreme Hike program takes hikers through some of the most scenic trails in the nation to raise funds and awareness for cystic fibrosis. Xtreme Hike is about reaching new heights physically and philanthropically. It is a journey of passion, determination, and personal triumph, as much as it is an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of people with cystic fibrosis. Hikers ages 16 and up may participate. Click here to read the full Hiker Age Policy.

The Rocky Mountain Chapter’s Xtreme Hike will be held on September 19th in Vail, Colorado.  All hikers will enjoy accommodations for three days and two nights at the Vail Marriott Mountain Resort.  This includes an energizing, pre-hike pasta party, pre-hike breakfast, post party dinner and a “Victory” breakfast on Sunday.  As participants prepare for the physical challenge, hikers are encouraged to raise at least $2,500 through their personal and social media campaigns.  The Xtreme Hike is limited to 40 people.
