In 2009, avid hikers and longtime Foundation supporters, John Barlow and Amos Beason presented themselves with a challenge: hike 30 miles in a single day to give hope to those who may never have the opportunity to experience the thrill of climbing a mountain or the wonders of the outdoors. After a long and grueling day of hiking, they accomplished their goal and their passion has inspired hikers throughout the CF community and beyond to continue hiking until a cure is found. In just five short years, the XTREME HIKE program in Charlotte has raised more than $4.6 Million for vital CF research, care and education.
The Charlotte Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is proud to present the 2018 XTREME HIKE to Cure Cystic Fibrosis — Fall Edition.
In just one day, on September 29th, 2018 a dedicated team of Xtreme Hikers will hike a 30.1 stretch of the famed Appalachian Trail to raise funds and awareness for the CF Foundation’s mission to find a cure for cystic fibrosis. Hikers will train for three months to prepare for this amazing journey. Each participant also sets a goal to raise funds to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. We will provide you with all of the tools needed to reach your goals, both on and off the trail.
