Welcome to My Ultimate Hike Page
Thanks for visiting my Ultimate Hike page!
On April 27th, I will be participating in The Ultimate Hike, trekking 28.3 miles on the Foothills Trail in just one day! We’ll be hiking rain or shine and will be getting up before 3:30 AM! I’m not just trekking for fun, but for a cause that’s very important – helping to fund critical research to help find more cures and safer treatments for children with cancer. This is my 4th year participating in the Ultimate Hike.
CureSearch is the organization I’m hiking for, because they work to ensure that children with cancer today receive the best care, and that children with cancer tomorrow will face a much more curable disease. They see research through from start to finish and hold the researchers they fund accountable for results. The best part of it is that 100% of your donation goes directly to the research!
As I’ve learned more about children with cancer, I’ve found that one in eight won’t survive their disease, and 60% of survivors will have devastating, lifelong side effects. Sadly, I have had more than one friend have a child diagnosed with cancer, and there is no guarantee that one day it won’t be one of my own. I am passionate about this hike. It's the one thing I feel that is extremely important that so many children can benefit from. Many children with cancer will not have the opportunity to take on a mountain or experience the wilderness as we will without real progress toward a cure. I am doing this so one day every child with cancer will survive and thrive; so that they can take on an Ultimate Hike, run for President, or accomplish whatever other dream they have.
The hospitals and research supported by CureSearch has turned children’s cancer from a virtually incurable disease 40 years ago to one with an overall cure rate of nearly 90%. They’ve made real progress – and I’m going to help them cross the finish line. I’m committing to hike the miles – would you commit to helping me raise the funds by making a donation to CureSearch on my behalf?
Together, we can make a difference in the lives of children with cancer. Thank you for helping me recognize this special occasion and for supporting the mission of CureSearch!

Thank you for helping me tell children’s cancer to take a hike!
