Welcome to My Ultimate Hike Page
Thanks for visiting my Ultimate Hike page!
I am participating in a true ultimate challenge - hiking to raise funds for children's cancer. For example, $25 will support one day of treatment on a clinical trial for a child with cancer; $50 can fund ten minutes of Acceleration initiative research, like research conducted on Ewing sarcoma; $5000 can fund two months of research for a novel cell based immunotherapy for Acute Myloid Leukemia. My goal has been raised to $5000 total ; it's what Rebecca had.
The money I raise will 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.
Five of the 43 children diagnosed every day do not survive. Please, support me as I help change the odds for those children most at risk.
This year is particularly special !!! I will be hiking on the Superior Hiking Trail in northern Minnesota to honor Rebecca's bone marrow donor, Ben. He and his family, who live in MN, have given so much of themselves to my family in the form of love, support and patience. We can never thank them enough for all that they have done- and continue to do- for Emmaline, Vinson, and myself.
