Welcome to My Ultimate Hike Page
Thank you 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! Of my many talents, my greatest is enduring long, rugged hikes. I mainly take hikes for my own enjoyment and health, but this year, I am using my enjoyment of hiking to raise funds for children's cancer research. When I find time, I put weights and snacks in my backpack, find a trail, and disappear for a few hours. Coming up in August, I will hit the trail for the longest single-day hike I will have done, but I need your help to get there.
I, and other participants of Ultimate Hike, will set off to hike 25.5 miles of the Superior Hiking Trail on Saturday, August 24, 2019. This event, for seasoned hikers, may simply be a walk in the woods. For others, it will be the biggest challenge and accomplishment they will face. Regardless of the participants' skill level, the children diagnosed with cancer face the toughest challenge of all.
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.
Why have I chose to hike?
Five of the 43 children diagnosed every day do not survive. For so long, I have taken for granted the ability to set off on wilderness adventures, and at times, the only thing holding me back has been a lack of time or money. I hike so that every child may have a chance to experience an ultimate wildernesss adventure. Those five children, each day, who do not survive, never get that chance. With your donations, they will at least be given a chance.
Thank you for helping me work to tell children's cancer to take a hike!
