Welcome to My Ultimate Hike Page
Thanks for visiting my Ultimate Hike page!
I am participating in a true ultimate challenge - hiking 28.3 miles of the Foothills Trail in just one day to raise funds to fight children's cancer. My ultimate challenge is only one day, April 25, which does not compare to the challenges children and their families face when dealing with cancer.
The fight against cancer became very personal to me as one of my former students, Catherine Sherpy, lost her courageous fight with leukemia on June 17, 2013. As such, I have been blessed to hike in Catherine's memory. Like most families, mine has been touched by cancer with the loss of my brother and father.
With your help, I can surpass my $2,500 fundraising commitment! The money I raise will support CureSearch for Children's Cancer, a national non-profit foundation that is making real progress in pediatric cancer research. In addition, they are the authoritative source for information resources about children's cancer for families and their support systems.
Your donation will make a difference in the lives of the 43 children diagnosed with cancer each day. Currently, five of those 43 children diagnosed do not survive. Please help us change the odds for those children most at risk.
Help us tell children's cancer to take a hike!
