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! Please, make a donation and make a difference in the lives of the 43 children diagnosed with cancer each day.
I will be hiking 25.5 miles on the Superior Hiking Trail in August along with Jodi and Marcy
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.
Providing kids with treatments designed for adults can have devestating side effects on their developing bodies. CureSearch focuses on delivering better treatments for children NOW. Children deserve access to cancer-curing therapies made for their little bodies. They deserve a life without destructive side effects or secondary diseases. They deserve to live the rest and best of their lives.
Although I my family has not been personally touched by Cancer - I have a friend whose family was impacted. As we were talking about family activities and interests - she made a comment that their family was sitting in hospitals at the time when many families were developing those common interests. That's when it hit me - to be grateful for all we have been able to do as a family.
I am hiking to make sure all families get a chance to spend time developing common interests - Camping, Skiing, whatever. No more families spending precious time in hospitals.
