Welcome to My Ultimate Hike Page- Hike for EMB
- Thanks so much to everyone that came out to the raffle and hockey game! I’ve reached my participation goal! I couldn’t be more thankful for all of the help and donations.
- There are still events coming up!
- April 5th Friday evening until 10pm come out to Kate’s skating rink to support and have a blast on roller skates or blades!
We are telling cancer to take a hike!
I am participating in an ultimate hike 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.
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.
This cause is especially important to me because I lost my youngest sister, Elizabeth, to leukemia when she was only 14. This was three years ago and I still get frustrated that there was nothing more I could do to save her life. The money I am raising for this hike will go towards research specifically for children’s cancer treatments and cures. This is an opportunity to do more for the children who are still fighting, and the families in the future who receive this devastating diagnosis. If I can put even one bit of my effort toward saving one family from hearing the unbearable news that there are no more options I would hike endless miles. This hike is only 28.3 miles. With your donation we can be there for these families.
Many of you have heard that only 4% of government funding for cancer research goes towards pediatric cancer. Cancer is the leading cause of death in children and adolescents in the US. They deserve #morethan4. This charity is a way to provide some of the funds that the children deserve but are lacking. All of the money goes specifically to research on pediatric cancers.
