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 and with your help, I can surpass my fundraising goal!
In high school, my cousin Emily was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. 5 very short months later she was gone. This is the reality for far too many kids diagnosed with this and other forms of cancer. Most of the treatment and protocols for treating childhood cancer are those used to treat adult cancer. Unbelievably, in 20 years there have only been three new drugs introduced to help cure childhood cancer. We are hiking to ensure this changes!
For the past 9 years, Emily's mom Amy has been an inspiration as an advocate for childhood cancer research. 2019 will mark the first time that I am able to join her on the Ultimate Hike, and in raising much needed funds for childhood cancer research.
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. Your donations help change the odds for those children most at risk.
Thank you for helping me work tell children's cancer to take a hike!
