Welcome to Mary's Ultimate Hike Page
Thanks for visiting my Ultimate Hike page!
I am participating in a true ultimate challenge - hiking just over 25 miles in less than 24 hours on the Superior Hiking Trail - to raise funds for children's cancer research and with your help, I can surpass my fundraising goal! Together, our donations and commitment can make a difference in the lives of the 43 children diagnosed with cancer each day.
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, be as generous as you can to help change the odds for those children most at risk. I will be hiking the 25 miles mindful of the courage it takes these children and families to face the challenges of coming through to the other side of cancer treatment, remission, and cure!
With all that is ahead for families dealing with childhood cancer, having better treatments is an achievable goal with our help and researchers dedication.
You probably know a family who has been struck by cancer in a child. It is devastating, but we can help change the outlook for the children and families.
Thank you for helping me work tell children's cancer to take a hike!
