Welcome to Ultimate Hike

Ultimate Hike is a life changing, lifesaving adventure! Accomplish a once-in-a-lifetime goal, make new friends, and help CureSearch for Children's Cancer fund lifesaving research. With your help, together we can change the odds for children with cancer. Join us for a hike in your area, or increase the adventure by training on your own for a hike that's far away. By hiking with us, you are changing the odds for the more than 40,000 children, adolescents, and young adults who are currently undergoing treatment for pediatric cancer, as well as in the 43 children who are newly diagnosed each day.

Ultimate Hike - Create Your Adventure

Ultimate Hike: Create Your Adventure is your chance to plan your lifesaving adventure from start to finish. All you need is an idea, and you're ready to hike, climb, or camp your way towards cures for children's cancer! Here are some ways Hikers have created their adventure:

Youth scavenger hunt
Family camping trip

Whether you do a solo trek, involve your child's youth group, or hike with 100 of your closest friends, every step you take will make a difference. Stay close to home or trek across another country. The best part? You get to set your own fundraising goal! If you'll be hiking in 2017, register here. Or, email us at ultimatehike@curesearch.org if you have any questions.
