Welcome to My Ultimate Hike Page 2018
Thanks for visiting my Ultimate Hike page! I'm back for my 6th hike. Since starting in 2014 I have raised over $10,000.00 to fund cancer cures for the stubborn types of cancer in children. This has been accomplished through the support of friends, family and strangers.
September Update: I am well over the $2400 amount required to hike but this year I have a greater goal. To date, with the help of terrific fundraisers and generous friends and family I have been able to raise over $6,800. Can you help me get to $7,000?
Did you know that five of the 43 children diagnosed with cancer every day do not survive?
Did you know that less than 5% of donations to fund cancer cures is for childhood cancer?
Would you like to join me in helping to change these statistics?
This year our hike is 28 miles, shorter by about 2 miles than past years. We still hike that distance in one day to support CureSearch for Children's Cancer, a national non-profit foundation whose mission is to fund and support targeted and innovative children's cancer research, with measurable results. In addition, they are the authoritative source for information resources about children's cancer for families and their support systems.
CureSearch works to get more treatments and cures out of the laboratory and into clinical trials and eventual commercialization. The 40,000 children currently undergoing cancer treatment and their families are thankful for this type of research push.
The St. Louis Team has been quite successful and we hope to do even better this year. Once again, our team has new members, returning members and many supporters. None of us ever believed that we would hike such a distance in one day but we do. It's scary for those who are new but not as scary as a cancer diagnosis or cancer treatment.
Some on our team have little or no connection to childhood cancer, some have children who are undergoing treatment, some have children who have lost their battle. No matter the reason we all want to improve treatment options for these children and cure childhood cancer!
Can you make a donation in any amount to CureSearch? Would you share this information with friends, co-workers and family?
You can make a donation to our team or an individual. Look for my name on the right if you'd prefer to make the contribution in my name.
Please, support me as I help change the odds for those children most at risk.
Thank you for helping me tell children's cancer to take a hike!
