Welcome to My Ultimate Hike Page
My wife Barbara and I have been so fortunate to raise three heathy chidren. Each has grown into a happy productive young adult, untouched by catastophic illness. I know many of you have had the same good fortune. However every day 43 other families will not be so lucky and receive the devasting news that a child has cancer. Five of those children will not survive. But with your help, research to find a cure for childhood cancers can turn this statistic around.
I am participating in a true ultimate challenge - hiking 28 miles in a single day to raise funds for children's cancer research. With your support, I can surpass my fundraising goal! Please, make a donation and make a difference in the lives of those 43 children and their families.
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. In addition, they are the authoritative source for information resources about children's cancer for families and their support systems.
Hiking 28 miiles in a single day is a big challenge for me and is a goal I am working very hard on achieving. But my challenge is nothing compared to that faced by those 43 children and their familes.
I am asking for your support, in any amount, to help me tell children's cancer to take a hike!
Thank you from me, and my soon-to-be sore body, for your help.
