Welcome to My Ultimate Hike Page
Thanks for visiting my Ultimate Hike page!
Most of you know that I love to hike and each year I try to hike somewhere new or take on a new challenge. This year I am proud to be participating in something truly special. I will be hiking 28.3 miles in a single day to raise funds for children's cancer and with your help, I can surpass my fundraising goal and make a difference in these kids lives. Please help if you can by making a donation and know that you are making a difference in the lives of the 43 children diagnosed with cancer each day.
The very day I decided to take on such a difficult hike for a great cause I learned about Ethan. Ethan is a courageous 3 year old from Apex, North Carolina who was diagnosed with cancer last March. Ethan has a very rare form of cancer that accounts for only about 3 percent of childhood cancers. Ethan's cancer started in his prostate and immediately started an agressive course of chemotherapy. This February he is scheduled to have the tumor, his bladder and prostate removed. One day when he was in the hospital in a lot of pain, Ethan sat up in bed, shook his fist and yelled "I NEED MY SUPERPOWERS!”
I'm dedicating this hike to Ethan and hope all of you can help Ethan and kids like them get their SUPERPOWERS back!!!
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!
