Welcome to My Ultimate Hike Page
Thanks for visiting my Ultimate Hike page!
As my family, friends, and colleagues know, hiking and cancer research are two of my favorite things. I'm really excited about the opportunity to do both with a single event!
I will be participating in the Ultimate Hike, on Saturday, April 27th. This will be a 28.3 mile hike on the Foothills Trail, starting in North Carolina and finishing in South Carolina, to help raise money for children's cancer research.
Some current research that we are doing at the Rural and Minority Research Center has shown that, between 1999 and 2017, 8,338 rural children and young adults died from cancer. That means at least one rural child dies from cancer everyday. Urban children, of course, are affected as well. Childhood cancer does not discriminate.
I would be grateful for your support of this important cause. Any amount is greatly appreciated--$5, $10, $100, etc. Or, consider donating $28.30--a dollar for every mile I'll hike! Just click the "donate now" link where you can securely donate. Please feel free to share this link with anyone who also might be interested in this cause!
Even if you can't give, I'd welcome your prayers and good wishes! This will be the longest hike I've ever done! Thank you for you support.
