Welcome to My Ultimate Hike Page
Thanks for visiting my Ultimate Hike page!
Most of you who know me, know that I enjoy a challenge and trying something new. In the past 6 months, I have learned of 3 children, all under the age of 8 that have been diagnosed with cancer and in treatment to fight that cancer. I don't know these children myself, but know their loved ones in one way or another. But, their stories have weighed on my mind and I couldn't shake the idea that I needed to do something, anything!! I lost my niece, Theresa, to cancer at age 14, many years ago and hearing about these little ones brought her struggle with this dreaded disease back loud and clear.
I was skimming through Facebook several days ago and saw a free class at REI about the "Ultimate Hike". I checked it out and it was - lo and behold - a fundraiser for children's cancer!! I went to the class and signed up that night to hike 28.3 miles in one day on April 25th. I am not a hiker really but like the outdoors and am going to throw myself into the challenge of preparing to do this hike!
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, consider makng 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.
Five of the 43 children diagnosed every day do not survive. Please, support me as I help change the odds for those children most at risk.
Thank you for helping me work tell children's cancer to take a hike!!
