Welcome to My Ultimate Hike Page
Thanks for visiting my Ultimate Hike page!
I am participating in a true ultimate challenge - - hiking 25.5 miles to raise funds for children's cancer and with your help, I can surpass my fundraising goal!! Please, make a donation and make a difference in the lives of the 43 children diagnosed with cancer each day.
This past year was a tough one. We lost a beautiful soul-my adorable little cousin Cully. In his memory I will be doing this hike. Cully Oothoudt lost his 2 year battle with Medulloblastoma (recurrent). Cully loved Star Wars, play doh, puzzles and celebrating birthdays. He will be missed by many.
I will also be walking in honor of my nephew Nick Schonorck who at the age of 2.5 was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia. He is now 20 and Cancer Free for the past 17 years.
This year I learned about little Joelle. The 7 year old friend of my great niece Tatum. She was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia in September. She is in treatment right now and my little niece asks her mom, why does she have to take medicine that makes her sick!!
These 3 have inspired me so much with their courage and determination!!! Their parents continue to be an inspiration to me also for their unfailing commitment to their children.
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.
Thank you for helping me work tell children's cancer to take a hike!
